    Blah blah blah, can it cook sausages! Blah blah blah, Nvidia always over charge us!
    Blah blah blah, the 6970 will be better! Blah blah blah, do I need a nuclear powerstation to run it!

    I have a really novel idea, let's come up with some original comments and not the usual fan nonsense.

    I want a fast single GPU card, but there's no way I'm paying anywhere near £500 for one.

    Sorry but no matter how good it is £500 is about £300 over my budget.

    £500.00?! When you can pay £200.00 for a card that will run all games at high settings why bother with anything else more expensive? (except for multi-monitor setups)

    it might be able to cook sausages.. yeah early adopters always get shafted by nvidia.. being one of them 3 times- you have to sell the previous card and buy up.. or be scrooge mcduck

    thing that pisses me off about nvidia is- they will sit on their hands and milk as long as they are the single gpu leader.. I'm not saying the hardware is bad- just they aren't an intel who keep ahead of the game

    they're all about the money huang style suki suki :D

    Two things I'd like to see:

    1) 2GB of VRAM for those of us with large resolutions.

    2) Nvidia to call this GPU the 485, like it's supposed to be!

    wait, 1.5GB isn't enough for your 30 inch monitor?

    agree with 2 though.

    DVI, VGA and mini-HDMI?? nVidia have just managed to make 2 out of 3 connectors useless!


    i think im going to take bit-tech podcast's advice, and stick with my 5870 until next year.

    You'd be surprised! Admittedly this is in silly cases when I'm trying to run 16xAA rather than 8x but some games can still push it hard (Metro 2033 and STALKER for example).

    It also helps in animating finite element analysis results - there's a reason why the stupidly expensive CAD cards offer 4GB+.

    i am making do with no AA in some games when trying to power 2560x1440 with my 5870 1GB, and would be perfectly happy with 4xAA........ yet comes Pete who is disappointed that 16xAA is struggling, and have to use 8xAA?

    i am speechless.

    Well, let's take a step back for a second here. £500 is an objectively large number. That's the limit for the entire Affordable All-Rounder PC in the monthly hardware guide. That's more than the eye-wateringly expensive dual-GPU 5970, even. At that price, it will have to be blisteringly fast to maintain a decent price-perfomance ratio. Even the GTX480 it's replacing is £150 cheaper inc VAT on Scan.

    You want some original comments to put in a novel, and preferably nothing about the fan?!

    As soon as I read your blahblah comment I thought that was rich coming from someone who posted this ealier. It works both ways ya hypocrite. Now cheer up.

    That is a lot of money though I'm sure it will come down some next year.

    But then again you can justify anything if you want it enough LOL,

    Think I'll buy three.

    Asus pulled the info off their page. So it's back to pure speculation.
