    Good lord.

    I guess some people will pay anything to play their games. Considering the price of two of these in SLI is the price of a nice downpayment on a car.....well, I'll leave well enough alone.

    Anybody that buys one of those is a dunderhead. The current models offer more than enough power for any game(maybe with the exception of Oblivion) and with the DX10 R600's and G80's coming out near the end of the year, it would be a colossal waste of money. But some folks have more money than brains. :)

    for some reason, they took it down today...

    It might be a stand-in price but there are a few things to remember:

    #1 That is a CANADIAN price. Even though, it still works out to $910.00 USD.

    #2 Some online dealers jack up their prices through the roof when they know a product will be in demand.

    If this ends up being $600.00, I think it will be an amazing deal. 2 GTXs cost almost $900.00 right now.

    But, how will ONE PCI-E x16 slot handle the amount of information from two GTX cores at once?

    yeah its doubtful a single PCIE slot can handle so much power
    they should introduce some PCIE*32:rolleyes: or sumthing

    I currently play it at 1600x1200 with 16x HQ AF with no problems. Talk about friggin beautiful!

    BTW, do you have your 4800 under H20? My Opty is using a Thermalright SI-120 w/94cfm fan but it still doesn't want to hit 2.8 without too much voltage.

    The x16 slot isn't close to being saturated. Hell, the AGP 8x wasn't saturated before the switch to PCI Express.

    Indeed I believe the PCIE 16X slot can handle 40GB/s (each X is 2.5GB/S) bi-directionally, and NOTHING comes close to using all of that. Your CPU and Northbridge will choke up before the PCIE bus does. The bus can be manufactured to 32X which would be 80GB/s

    I actually think it's 4GB/s in each direction for a total of 8GB/s but it doesn't really make a difference in the big picture. A 16x slot will handle anything thrown at it.

    Indeed!!! With two of these things in SLI, even the highest-end processor of the current gen and even the forthcoming Conroes and AM2s will proove to be HUGE bottlenecks.

    IMO, dual-core or quad-core optimized games will be the ONLY things to help processors sift through all the info.

    Big Typhoon on the CPU, I have a lot of case airflow and ambient temps are pretty low.

    Hmmm, my case is a wind tunnel(5x120mm and 1x80mm fans) and it sits directly below an air conditioner. Maybe I'll pick up a Tuniq Tower, even though my SI-120 with the high CFM 120mm fan should be doing the trick. According to SmartGuardian, my Opty at 2.7 with Prime 95 going on both cores runs at 40C. Of course we all know that software monitoring can be quite inaccurate. I guess I shouldn't complain. 2.7GHz should get me through until February or March when I'm probably going to go Conroe with some G80's or R600's.

    $CDN or $US that's an insane price tag.

    This is just price gouging, as etailers often do with brand new video cards when they first come out (or in this case before they are supposed to come out). The MSRP of the 7950GX2 obviously will be significantly lower, though by how much we'll have to wait until they are officially launched.

    Price may fall abit, but I cant imagine much

    One 7950, I doubt will be $600 US, but you never know. Two 7900 GTX's costs about $1300 Canadian (I know cause I have two) or about $1200 US roughly, so $999/$910 isnt that far off.

    BIG thing to remember is that one 7950 is NOT the same as two 7900GTX's in sli, so I would imagine the price would be less for the 7950, then two 7900's since clocks and performance are very different
