Yeah I read that too. Be prepared for an absurd price on this card.

I bet the 1/1000, 500/1000, and 1000/1000 cards will be the most expensive due to their even-ness. LOL.

Well now im glad there will be only 1000, meaning that now i wont now as many people with one and wont envy them, it will be like envying someone with a Veyron. Though if the price is like 700USD and i manage to sell my GTX295 i might buy one

With so many limited quantities i don't know if they will be sending these ones for free, maybe they will make some specific to sampling, without the 1000 count. Or they will request them back

im willing to bet, that edition number 295 is worth the most.

damn i want this card so bad, i bet it tears the ass out of a reference GTX295 stock for stock.

don`t know why , but the card design reminds me of QUAKE2 . I like the PCB design , looks nice , professional and clean , but the metal shroud looks like crap with those screws visible on top of the card . i hate the cooling method anyway , i do believe this will be loud like hell , will overheat , so you want to push it to the max you need a water block in there ... and yea .. you can`t find one . So you pay extra money for what exactly? Extra ram that you don`t really use . Blah .. it`s just me , you can still love the card , i won`t judge you .

Some companies will probably make special Water blocks for it which needs to be ordered...

yes mate , but thinking there are just 1000 pieces , the special waterblocks will cost like 150-170 E . Added to the card`s price witch i expect to be around 570E ... my point was that you pay too much for nothing special ...

ASUS would be more likely to give you the finger than to lend you a sample for benches...
