i have no problem with buying nvidia stuff, some things are quite nice, but who outs himself as nvidia fanboy, now, has to be completly silly. they simply FUCKED their chip. no gt300 for christmas,do you get it? they are too dumb,and too addicted to money to achieve even 10% yield!!!
if they out it, propably on march next year, it will cost a small fortune. more than 2 5850 in crossfire. dont float the green boat. they are sinking.

just my 2cents;)

EDIT: just, please stop the fanboying. nvidias new product ist not worth the good words until we see a working prototype.
Sorry but anybody talking about yields is obviously "drinking the cool aid". Yield is all about the fab and not Nvidia. Nvidia is not having problems with yields unless you believe the fabricated stories by guys that just lie. Seriously get a better source. Or start wearing tin foil helmets.

Why do they lie? Because people like you will just believe them and never question its validity. Even W1zzard said any talk of yields is BS.

take a piece of paper. use a marker to put 5 dots (= silicon defects) on it. now cut the paper into 10 pieces, whats your yield % ?

now use another paper, put 5 dots too and cut it into 50 pieces, whats the yield % now ?

uhm, i havent done it, but i believe the size of the dot matters... and if the dots are spreaded or concetrated on one small area.... im not that microchip genius, it just sounded logical;)
tho its a fact, that nvidia lovers probably face a sad christmas:D due to what fact ever, maybe nvidia just has lost their fortune,maybe they just bluff, and have the real fermi in the backhand. the only thing i know now is: it wont be cheap:)

2 months ago I bought a new GTX 275 for $50 less than the price of a 5850.

slower. no dx 11. no eyefinity. hotter. louder. no hdmi.

what else?

.
The GTX series does do HDMI through the adapter provided witht he card and the SPDIF cable for pass through audio.

But is it the completely the same?

I have never owned an ATI card in my life. But I'm sold on the 5850 and I'll be picking up one for an msi platinum x58 sli as soon as newegg has them in stock.

then after the years end I'll be getting another one when the prices go down, or if they release a 5890 with an increased bus. who knows.. but the 5850 seems like a best buy right now. Looking forward to new eye candy with DX11 soon.

Cheap? Yes!
Killer of 5870? By far no. Crossfire is a good upgrade path, but it isn't worth the mess if you want 5870 performance.
The 5770s are 128-bit after all, and the bandwidth are exclusive to each card. 128-bit *2 is not 256-bit. :p
So at higher resolutions, 5770CF will perform closer to the 5850.

The HD5k series are better at OC overall compare to the 4ks.
The HD 5800s have volttera vrm which allows voltage control.

ive heard mixed opinions of sapphire cards. anyone have something positive to say about previously owned sapphire products?
All my ATI cards have been sapphire and have all been decent and solid products.
