    What are you talking about, African brother? 750 US$ for the 30-incher.

    Not African....I just immigrated there.
    I'm trying to say 2560x1600 is not as popular as 1920x1080

    Yup. That's just about what I said/thought. And I got some back-up.

    Since the first time a graphics card was forcefully glued 1024MB of vRAM without needing it because it was an entry-level card, this card is the only one that makes the ridiculous amount of memory seem cool.

    Oh, and I hate the crappy porting job those idiots did to GTA 4. Isn't it fun to laugh at them?

    and if even 1/10th of the people with those 30" screens want these monster cards, asus would sell out.

    its not like these are going to be mass produced and sold at best buy for $2K for the next 2 years. they're a brief thing for those that want the best, and want it now.

    So, you're white living in a black man's world?! White power, brotha!

    Yes, and gold is not as popular as bronze. I used to have bronze.. then I gave it away to someone who wouldn't be able to use that past tense as quickly as me. Hey, if they ever came out with a 37" ~3400x2130 resolution, I'd do something else with the 30". Although, since it was refurbished from Dell when I got it, I may not just give it away. Besides, it's fucking awesome.

    My.. god. You just described me. Except, I don't want it for that high of a price. No can do, huh?

    This is going to be as expensive as the Ultra. Gosh, I wonder if there's someone who doesn't know what I am talking about.

    Great news btanunr!:toast:

    Fantastic cooler, but I think the ''all-black'' would be better.. Is there any picture with the cooler itself?

    we will be adding 2560x1600 to future vga reviews. all praise zotac for providing us an LG 30"

    using 2560x1600 is like going from weed to cocaine. i really really have to buy one for my desktop.

    That's actually a pretty accurate metaphor.

    Too bad they don't have such awesome deals in Germany.

    Another Asus innovation, seems they should almost be making their own GPU's as they also are the only company who makes 4850x2's.
