    Think of it as new rims for your car or something :laugh:. These seem worth it! But at the same time unecessary!

    Can't wait to see how this turns out :rockout:

    Guess it's more expensive since it has more memory, right? :p

    When will we see a 6GB card, screw that 10GB Nvidia FTMFW 999 Titian Extreme Edition~$999.99 with $20 MIR. X)

    The normal 5970 already does, so it is a no brainer. ;)

    nah i think they were trying to go for the ' XFX 5970 Weapon' effect. As you can see the design on the side of the gun.

    As in XFX 5970, your weapon in gaming. That type of marketing shite.

    But human_error is correct you could easily pass those clocks underwater and for alot cheaper price.

    said XFX, in a statement to Nordic Hardware. "GTX480 and GTX470 are upon us, but perhaps the time has come to Ferm up who really has the big Guns."

    How things change, XFX once a loyal and solid partner of Nvidia, teaming up with the enemy (money calls); I still remember my dead XFX GeForce2 :cry:

    Could you imagine Sapphire making GeForce? :nutkick:

    This is excellent for competition, I don't wanna think of a world with a gpu monopoly.

    I know, but many of these product art designers knock things off now and then. For example, Gigabyte made an obese Iron Man knockoff on its Ultra Durable VGA marketing.

    for that price the card should really make some kind of "pew pew" sound when running a 3D game XD

    Wow I would as well! $1K would be meaning €2K over here :(

    Wait a sec... I shouldn't be making these type of statements on the net being a girl... :eek:

    :D

    Well, perhaps I'd get away with it if I post in русский язык ;)

    unless you were like Tiger and used a projector as a monitor then stared directly into the beam...

    I love kids though too and I'm glad you appreciate them more than your computer. Good father :)

    Most hobbies are asininely expensive. You know how much people spend on skiing, snowboarding or surfing? I have a friend that ordered $10,000 in blank skateboards for no reason. This pc shit is a hobby, with the added bonus of actually being used every day unlike that other crap. In that respect it's not that absurd for people to spend that much.
