Clearly the lack of gusto in the original post was not sufficient to notify anyone of the listing... so the caps probably helped. All the same, I will try to keep my finger off the shift key.

I'll sadly wait this generation out as I already have enough GPUs to run most games. A 5870X2 does sound rather tempting if someone were to buy my current GPUs.

it's amazing to me that these prices seem high. don't you remember just a few years ago when ati came out with the x800xt PE and it was like $500+. I guess the real problem is that games need to catch up with this kind of shader power.

I remember just 2 short years ago, I bought my 8800gt SC and paid $279 for it on the day it came out. people wanted them so bad the price went up to like $330 for a couple of weeks; the card was sold out practically everywhere.

I'm with you guys though. I think I'll pick up a 4870 for cheap or get a gtx 260 to satisfy my upgrade bug this year.

+100 $ doesn't look so smart if you ask me,
same with the 4850 and 4870
the difference wasn't too big
