but.. ooohhhhhh..SLI mmmmmmmmmmmm....droooolllllllll gimme gimme gimme
So..who's gonna buy it?
i don't see the point of it if it costs as much as 2 6800ultras.
1grand for a card...ouch
Well Tigerdirect is most likely price gouging.
Oh yeah! (Getting credit card out and filling out the online order form). NOT!!!!!!!!!
No longer do we live in day where the older technology gets cheaper. The new technology just gets more expensive.
Actually, yeah, that is pricegouging, but the price will come down eventually (just like it did with the Radeon X850XT PE.)
Edit: Notice on the system requirements, you must have at least 128 Mb of memory. Now we live in an age where it's concieveable to have more video memory than system memory, though it would be very unwise to do so. If you wanna tap that card, get at least 1 GB if not 2 GB.
Thats sad... I really hope people don't buy two of these. One is bad enough... 999$ for a graphics card that cost maybe 20$ to acutally manufacture.
i have a few thousand to throw around why the hell not..
512mb is such a waste of money... you can build a comp fo rthe price of 1 of those 6800u 512mb and when 1 part cost more then the machine its in somethin is seriously wrong.
Why the hell not just wait for the next line of cards? I bet one of them will be nearly equal to two of these if not faster. Whats the point in spending that much (even if you have it) for extra memory. If you have SLI, I put money on it that these wont make a noticible difference in FPS even IF they are also put in SLI. So what, your just spending 2 grand on a gig of memory basically? Smart move
the extra memory will really help at 1600x1200 8xAA 8xAF - but in all honesty - who *NEEDS* that many FPS's
the ONLY reason to buy this card is for bragging rights.
Thinking about selling my car for two of these bad boys. Maybe even a kidney on ebay. hahhahhha **NOT**
ugh....... bob marley kicks ass
999.00 ! who the hell are they trying to kid. lmao. couple of those in SLi *would* be nice, but you'd need gates bank account !
I think, price gouging should be illegal! There is no regulation for these things at all. On the other hand they're gouging the price because they know there are some people out there who are stupid ehough to pay that kind of money to get this card before anybody else. Just wait a month or so and you'll get the same card for probably half of the price.
So it's not a good deal. Oh **** i just ordered 5. Nah Seriously by the time a game needs that much memory, summay like Pixel Shader 5 will be out which they don't support so you have to get a new card anyway.
Less than a week and it went down to $899 (same reseller, look at the first post). Just unbelievable!
I want one so bad.
