Yeah that card is a beast, but still more then it should be IMO. No video card should be more than 600-700 I think, and even that's pushing it with how fast technology moves.

Well some people think the x800 xt pe is better than the 6800 ultra, which might be true, but even if it is, the increase in performance is way too small to really make you care.
