    its only 25% (I think) faster than a 295 but about 4 times the price- for which you could have 2 295 and make up that difference and more and a 260 for a physics card...... it makes no sense!!!

    They aren't pricing it by performance, they are pricing it by availability.

    Its a garuntee'd bit of cash for them, and assuming the hardware lasts a while perhaps actual price may increase - but a 1000 of them isn't particularly rare as I glance over the old voodoo cards.

    They won't quite cost $1700 as aready stated above here, it's just that British e-tailer gouging up prices. Since it's $1500 for pre-orders here (including our VAT), I'm sure it will be even less in the US. Still expensive, certainly!

    And there gonna be idiots that will pay that much for them. Why would you pay 1.7k for a GTX295. you could Build a I7 920 rig and stick a cheaper GTX295 .
