    Nice

    Nice find but newegg has crappy customer service and return policy, also price is little to high, so still looking.

    Battlefield 4 Premium is about 100$/€ maybe more, depens where you buy. So I guess only card will be around 700-650?

    agreed, they definitely did something different this time around if they think they can get away with this price point. especially for a pre-order.

    Lets just hope they aren't treating their mantle performance and the reason why this GPU is better than nvidia's. While I respect AMD for trying to find more efficient ways of doing things, I don't like that they often price things based on a handful of benchmarks.

    Do you really have a need to replace a 6950 right now? I figured what you have is still more than good enough for most games, especially considering the drivers ought to be pretty polished at this point. I personally have 2 HD5750s, which is worse than what you have, and they do a good job so far.

    Wow that's costly. I was under the assumption these we're going for ~$450. I wanted to pick one up because the price would be down to earth.

    That was false assumption... How can a card like this be only 450$? That's just not what people expected.

    650$ would be really nice, i hope we will see some reduction soon enough.

    The price should drop within a month or so after release, especially if you can find it without the BF4 bundle. Still way out of my league though. lol

    The pre-order prices are probably the only ones that are sky high, id lmfao if when the normal cards start getting in, they are about £100+ less :D
