I was going to post that yesterday, it was on $5600 then, and now it's almost doubled in price, with 8 days left! I know it's a monster, but that's just insane.

Is it just me, or is XFX just failing worse and worse lately?

Yeah, their crap PCB cards are one thing, but stuff like this... jeez...
I definitely don't think they skimped on anything with this card

Sorry, I sold it. I bought it cheap and I was hoping the box would be unsealed so that I could play with it, but it wasn't. Would have been nice to kick that 470's arse with it...

I did buy some new stuff that I kept though, check my sig

A Lot of people would disagree with that.

What about CentOS/RHEL?

And if you're talking Unix, then there is FreeBSD and Solaris, too!

I'd say debian in the top 4... but it depend's what you're using the server for.

I saw. It's "new" but you'll definitely drop back in the CPU region, now.

I'm still not sure about that. 470 vs 5850 is very close. And it really depends what the limitations are.

Did the seller state that the box was not closed? Hence the card being cheap...?

470 wins in DX11, though not by much. In DX10, the 5850 owns
