    You can't. Anyone can buy it and when they're out of stock they'll just remove it from your cart.

    Why do you need two eyefinity 6 editions. I mean...it has 6 ports on it, why not sli with a normal one?

    Unless you are gaming way above 1920x1200, save your money and get a 1gb 5870 or better yet a 5850. There are no benefits to this card at normal "HD" resolutions.

    OR, if your one of the few people who plays flight sims like DCS black shark and Flaming cliffs 2. the 2GB comes in handy.

    It's really nice to finally see some 2GB cards, but swining at the $500 marker with the 480 on the way seems kind of stupid too me....

    I agree... if your goign to use this to power a single monitor. But if going for eyefinity, I haven't ever got to test myself, but I just can't see how a 1GB card could ever push 3 monitors at 1080 with higher settings on a decent game.

    $500 is too much. $450 yes, $500 no.

    *sigh* Maybe when we actually see Fermi in the wild, the prices will drop some.

    what i never understood about this card is, if the cards out now just cover playing a game maxed out at high res's...how the hell is it going to cover 6 high res screens? enjoy playing stalker at low settings at ~30 fps on your 6 screens? no thanks :rolleyes:

    You really need crossfire to do so. at 5760x1080, your putting alot of demand on the GPU...However dual 5870s handle BC2, Dirt 2, Dragon Age, Anno 4, and several other games at high settings just fine. The only thing that really kills FPS in eyefinity is AA, MSAA. I thought my GPUs were dead when i first loaded up BC2, turns out I had AA and MSAA maxed and even with twin 5870s you get 5 FPS...

    no it will take the vertical / horizontal resolution of all of the screens and render that as one big screen

    Yeah, which pretty much defeats the purpose of having 6 monitors on a single card for gaming. You need more than one card anyway.

    You realize that for that price you get a bunch or mini DSP adapters.
