    That is the new universal quote for responding to nV GT300 vs ATi 5xxx series speculators.:toast:

    Maybe it is just me, but I kind of like just the black cooler. I kind of wish the manufacturers wouldn't put the ugly stickers on them. A simple sticker, basically like the one they used, but without the stupid sword(or woman in Sapphires case). I think these cards would have looked sleek as hell with just the all black cooler, and small sticker or even better silk screening of the letter right on the plastic.

    Looks good but when are they gonna get the core up to 1000mhz without a special edition or ocing? That is what Im waiting for. PRice isn't bad either for either one. Wish I had the cash, Id reel the 5870 in :D

    That sword is awesome and my His HIGHTECH 3870 on the cd came with some wall paper images with that sword. Very slick.

    They'll do that to make the 5890 when Nvidia comes out with something.

    Look, let's be honest here. :laugh:

    Gotta admit, though, the 4890 was a pretty good card, tweak and overclock that it was.

    I don't know if you would call 3 million more transistors a small tweak, your really simplifying it. But I would also expect a 5890 to release when the GT300's come out to keep competition strong.

    In a chip with nearly a billion -- yes, I call a few million transistors a "tweak." :D

    But, hey -- at least it was an improved chip (tweak, whatever you want to call it). At least they didn't just overclock it and call it a 4890 -- the chip that's in the 4890 is a better chip than the one in the 4870 (not that it was bad, either).

    don't forget the racing stripes and rear spoiler.

    lol at that vid totally hilarious.

    I await the benches on this. This is planned to be my next upgrade and I've been patiently biding my time with my poor little 9600gt. still undecided on the cpu/mobo front but that's nether here nor there at this point.

    hopefully this won't be too plagued by lack of driver support and poor early driver performance (sigh what am I saying it is ati lol)

    Personally, I'm waiting for the 5670. :laugh: I've got a delicate motherboard and a weak power supply coupled with a hungry processor -- I need the most efficient video card I can get.

    No, you're absolutely right. Women love no one -- they only keep you around if you're useful.
