    By the time you see it, you will be 5 seconds too late, and it will have been sold out. Kinda like the 5870 just up... Those who don't want it see it forever, those who do see it sold out before they can click buy. Rule of the internet.

    I snagged the sapphire from Newegg. Availability is likely going to suck until late October.

    Think my SeaSonic SS-550HT (550W) can handle it with the system in my specs (replace the HD4850 with the HD5870) ??

    I think so. If you read the Newegg Specs, it recommends 500Watt PSU. (600 for crossfireX)

    500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX technology in dual mode)

    Your border line, but I think it will be fine. Seasonic makes some potent PSU's.

    meh not impressive enough to buy it. I'll wait until they come with 5870x2 (not Crossfire but actual dual in one)

    Graphics are very Nice for a single GPU card. But to be honest im really stoked for Eyefinity. ZOMG 3 display gaming. "Immersive"

    Going to wait for third party cooling solutions. From the reviews I've read its LOUD (and hot). The performance is finally worth upgrading for though. I was thoroughly disappointed with the current gen this past year or so (having an 8800 GTX). Didn't think it would ever have that old "double the performance of your old card" feeling like in the old days when upgrading. This one will.

    I dont think its preorder. Read under the price: "In Stock: Usually ships in 24 hrs "


    It says preorder available... I dont think its for this particular card. If you add it to your cart, you get shipping options like 2 day and next day.

    According to newegg it enables everyone to get one fairly... there is a 48hour cooldown time though so you can get another shorty after, provided they have not sold out.

    WHAT BS when they are CF cards.....I think if you come with the money you should be able to buy 4 of them if you wanted. First come, first serve they have always done it that way.....

    I wonder what cry baby caused this.....

    Well I think they do it cause people would buy up like 20, sell all of them on ebay for a small markup, and profit. Not sure though.
