    i agree thats not *that* bad a price conversion...

    I wonder how much better the performance will be.... i may consider buying one, still dubious on how well all the current cards will perform in dx10 games

    if you game at really high resolutions this should be nice, i run 1920x1200 and want to b able to raise the gfx setting even more than my 1900xtx can handle. But hell yeah, i wanna try me some dx10 titles and see what it can do

    yeah, well in usa its goin for 600-650 excluding postage, dunno, and $650 is about £330, which is its sale price in uk, so thats a decent conversion for once (probs felt sorry for us with all the recent $1 = £1 melarky :( )

    Yeeeeee ha! Its about time. That said, i will certainly wait for reviews of this card before buying in light of the whole 8800 VS 2900 business thats been going on, seems the 8800 series is ahead, who knows what Nvidia has up their sleeve?

    The ATi loyalist in me says go for the new 2900, the stability gamer in me says go for an 8800?

    How do you guys think this card will perform?

    http://www.extreme-pc.ca/showproduct.asp?menu1id=12&menu2id=99&menu3id=39&productid=371414

    Its right up there with the 8800 ULTRA, and a fair bit cheaper 2

    I have a feeling that 1GB will come in handy with DX10...
