    May be it is a killer of GTX 550 Ti.

    Official news says it will be out April 5th. Looks to compete directly with the GTX 550 Ti. I don't understand the need for two PCI-E 6-pin connectors, it seems like overkill to me.

    A few months ago when I was still shopping around in the lower range cards I had my eyes set on the GTS 450 and I ran that for a few months happily. I was bit by the FPS bug and got my current card a few weeks ago. If I was still looking around though I'd probably buy a GTX 550Ti simply because it runs better than the 450 and only needs 1 PCI-E power connector. The 6790...I'm not excited for. Crappy thing is there are more motherboards that support CrossfireX than SLi, especially for AMD so I'd have to take that into consideration as well.
