I think the point of selling a card at a $550 price tag is for people with high budgets. Obviously there's no point of getting this card if you're running a Celeron processor and 128MB of RAM; not that it even would run.
The 4870x2 is probably going to sell for less than $550 dollars anyway, as Nvidia lowered their prices. The point is that it compares well to the 280, with probably a similar price point at release.
Needless to say, the card isn't even out yet, the drivers aren't matured at all, and we have only a tiny general idea of what the actual performance with the latest drivers will be at launch.
Anyway, no harm done
