So I ask you not to do the same.
What was the original release price of the Radeon 7970 because when I checked about 2-3 months ago it was @$750.00 usd.

UPDATE: My mistake Guilty :( http://www.anandtech.com/show/5261/amd-radeon-hd-7970-review .. .appears $550.00 was original price but i'm almost positive I saw $750.00 price gouging .. maybe on newegg ?

Sure not a problem now that a point has been made by both you and I :) ...

Anyway, I put spot on. My expectations were for it to beat out the 7970. It does.

Ps... I forgot to give my vote before ... yes I think it's a win, at least for lower TPD, heat, noise and @30-35% better performance over the GTX 580 :). But, at $100.00 cheaper and almost similar results I'm surprised to say I may like the GTX 670 better :bashful: .. still waiting on GTX 660 TI though before I spend some cabbage!

Kepler is awesome as a gamer GPU! It's faster while using less power. I think the 670 is the best buy atm.
I hope game devs will use the bindless extension asap, which can speed up things quite a lot.
Now we just need some good NV drivers again:)
