I'll probably grab one when my budget allows. My 2 6950's are doing just fine at the moment.

Newegg is always out when I look anyway.

Putting my practical hat on, I will never need one of these nor would I spend that much money on them. They are a great card, but why am I going to spend that much when I can be happy with a much lower priced card?

Well, not all of them are out of stock. The Diamond 7970 is still available on Newegg.

Also, anyone near a fry's. They are on the shelves in two stores right now. San Jose and Palo Alto if you happen to reside in the bay area of california.

I bought ten of these and put them in deca-sli mode. Tried to play hello kitty adventure island in 320x100 monochrome mode over a 110baud modem in multiplayer mode and the gpu's all overheated due to the lack of AA and any physx requirements. These are just huge heaps of crap, right Nimrod? 

 

That guy does need to lay off the crack. I believe they are appropriately priced for their specs, considering a gtx580sc is about the same price and sucks more power and puts out more heat.

These cards are NOT that impressive. In fact, i would say they are a colossal disappointment. They get spanked by a xfire set of up last gens cards and they are terribly over priced. A lot of us were expecting better things from the full node die shrink, we didnt them.

The only reason these cards are able to sell for so much is because nVidia is no where to be seen with their next offering. IN the mean time, these are a poor show. For the price they are a rip off.

Like everyone bellow said, these are very impressive and correctly priced, considering where the gtx580 sits. The only issue these might have is driver support at launch. Knowing AMD performance will improve slightly through better drivers (at least for single cards, Xfire might be different).

Nvidia FAN BOI?????

The second paragraph sure does tell me something is fishy.

I'm pretty sure that NewEgg having them out of stock doesn't mean they had them in stock (unless someone can post a screen otherwise).  I remember when the Antec P280 was "on sale" NewEgg didn't have them in stock for at least a week.

Yeah I had one in my cart last night and could have ordered it. I mean, that doesn't gurantee that they would have approved the order but newegg has been good to me about if they say they have it they let the order go through.

Too expensive, too noisy.  I'll wait for the cheaper HD 7000 varients or for Kepler to be released (and hopefully competition to drive down prices).
