yeah, because nothing says "mainstream graphics" and "general computing" to me like a $300+ graphics card.

Glad I got a 7770 now. The 7800s are a bit out of my price range. Plus they're overkill for what I play.

The Corrupted One

Everybody misunderstood the 7700 line, they thought they replaced the 7800 line. Nope, they were replacing the 6700 line. I saw them as a sign that better things were coming, they are almost as powerful as the next tier up.

AMD's official site shows 128-bit bus on both 7870 and 7850.

128-bit GDDR5 memory interface WTF AMD are only your high end cards to have 256bit or higher memory buses now
