    Everybody knows those two or three Nvidia fanboys on the forums are wrong in some of those aspects.(considering this is an AMD heavy forum)

    You have to remember, if you're buying a top end card, heat, power and noise don't matter to a lot of people, if you're paying top tier price you should know and have the precautions set up so that you can deal with those. In the end it's quite literally about performance actually, if this card is a monster, you bet your ass people/enthusiasts with the cash will be buying it no matter the heat, power, noise etc. and i honestly don't see a problem with that.

    The only thing i care about is bang for buck, i don't buy x card that performs 10% than a y card for 50% the price (for example), i don't care if its the FASTEST(10% pathetic)

    EDIT: oh ! my card runs 5 frames faster than yours........omfg.....

    I sure as hell wouldn't buy it for that price. I'm dying to ditch ATI, but not for that much money.

    Not very often we see an IHS on a GPU... wonder how hot those things are?

    I hope its like 400 bucks. Thats fair for a top tier GPU. To bad the GPU market isn't like the NFL and use price caps :laugh:

    it's funny how each generation the radeons get better relative to the geforces, look:

    3850<3870<8800gts<8800gtx nvidia
    4850 nvidia
    5850 amd
    6950=gtx570<6970=gtx580 ?? amd

    Hmmm interesting point, if you are right with the 5xx and 69xx cards it kind of makes me wonder if this was ATI/AMD's plan all along, just take a few steps closer each generation until they are back on top in all price points again.
