Take a look at this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Drop the gun shaped case and cut the price in half and I would consider buying one. I'm sure its sweet but 1200 is a bit much! 799.99 max!

And only a 2 year warranty? You better give me a lifetime warranty replacement like I have with my current XFX card. Simply amazing...

It seems to be a 5870x2 just like the asus ares is, the clock speeds match, but you can run eyefinity off of the XFX version. I agree that its a bit disappointing to see an XFX card without a lifetime warranty, i guess they know these things will cook themselves to death.

Its a powerful card, but i don't think its worth it,because although 5970 is slower, its cheaper and the performance difference isn't anything huge.
