yeah, its said to perform on par with 4 hd 4890's in crossfire.
I think thats a little exxagerated but i know it beats 4 4870's hands-down.

Thats gonna be my next gfx card upgrade when the price goes down.

lol thats overkill... The entire reason I didnt buy a second 4870 x2 is because those came out.
I'm gonna buy it in the summer when I have a job... along with a third 28 inch monitor for eyefinity and i think im gonna RAID0 some SSD's if I can find a deal.

I dont think a 1200w PSU would be enough... my 1010w is barely enough for 2 4870 x2's, or did AMD finally get the power consumption straightened out?

Looks nice, too bad there's a slim chance I will be getting it. The max I am willing to go on a graphics card is $150, so whatever is at that price that has good benchmarks compared to others priced the same and my current one.

5750 then, or a 5770 if you can find a deal... both are really good cards though.

I'm actually waiting for the 5850 to drop. I'm not looking to get a card till around next summer, so I am hoping those would drop to near $150.

Oh OK. I bet theyre gonna drop a good bit once the new nvidia cards come out (AMD has hinted they will) and probably even more when they release the 5890 and 5990 (if the 5990 ever comes)
