Ok,thankyou for the replies.I dont think that i can buy it from newegg,if i can i think that i would have to pay import tax on it,so it will not be any cheaper tbh. Its around the £400-£480 over here,depending on where you shop. That said,a little pricey for me at the moment lol,i think the 6870 is about my area at the moment.

suggested price is $499 for the US but i see the price way higher than that at newegg. maybe the price will come down a bit when 69XX series coming out these nov 22nd. but rumor has it that 69XX will got delayed a bit so we can only keep looking and hoping the price to go down :)

If you're planning to buy it would would strongly suggest waiting for the 6900 series to come from ATI, at the very least, the 580's price will go back down to $499.

if Cayman somehow able to beat 580 maybe the price will drop even more. :D  but right now we can only wait ;)

Well if we were to get it at the same price you are paying we should be picking it up for around £312,now that would be a bargin lol. Tbh i am a bit of a AMD/ATI fan,on my next build i was thinking of trying Nvidia along with a intel CPU,now i know that intel CPU`s are regarded as the best but power for price i dont think that AMD can be beat.

I've stopped listening to rumors, I think the companies spread them just so they can say "surprise" when they unveil it the day it was scheduled to come out. :pfff: 

Props to Nvidia for fixing the GTX 480, hopefully Amd is right behind them with their next gen, so the GTX 580 lowers in price(went from $500 to $550 overnight!) and Cayman has good price for performance. Too bad they couldn't cut out any transistors, the 580 is still a huge GPU.

It would be best to wait for AMD's response to these cards, their 69xx series is supposed to be out this month, your wallet may thank you. ;)
