    And I got myself a 4770 just a couple of months ago. Boo.

    If it can match the price point, sound levels and power draw of that with an improvement in performance ATI are onto a winner!

    All the outputs and 1GB GDDR5 for a low price.. Maybe.

    Depends just how low the price is.

    You've got the card but didn't run any benchmarks on it? You guys are such teases!

    We ran benchmarks, but we respect AMD and didn't post any yet ;)

    Forgot to plug the fan in, didn't you? :D

    Wait, does that mean the 5850 uses two 6-pin power connectors?

    Looking forward to seeing how this turns out - if it can beat my 4870 & the 4890 and have a respectable entry price, I may treat myself to one.

    Again I see people rushing out to buy the latest thing. Do you really need to upgrade as soon as a new card comes out, regardless of performance against existing products and without waiting for relevant products from the competition?

    I really do hope that nVidia's new product range kicks ATi's butt, and if not, at least I will KNOW where the real bargains are regarding bang per buck rather than just guessing.

    Unfortunately Schizo, some people have to have the latest thing, some more money than sense, when for others, it maybe a reward for working really f***ing hard. I really hope nVIDIA bring out a product that competes with, but doesn't kick the 5K series butt, as the competition should be driving innovation, plus how boring and stagnant would the graphics market be if they didnt? nVIDIA have been having a fair bit of bad press of late.

    Mr. Frog, it common knowledge that the competition won't have anything for some time to come. And then why wait? If your going wait then wait for the better product that comes after that and the one that comes after as well.

    Would be great if some of the news reports are right and its a sub $200 card - BUT only if those benchmarks show decent performance

    I'm not saying wait forever, merely a couple months. If you buy the right card for your budget then you don't need to upgrade again for at least 18 months or even more, even if you are on a £100- £150 budget for a gaming card. A 9600GT 512MB is still perfectly fine for playing at 16x10. nVidia's 8xxx and ATi's 4xxx series cards are not that far behind performance wise. So as I've said, unless your PC just blew up or you just fried you GPU, personally I think rushing out a buying these cards before we know what is what is just a dumb dumb move... But as Jack Pepsi hinted at... each to their own.

    It's smart to wait until nvidia show their hand.

    While the 5770 is tempting, I'm going to upgrade my 3870 with a 5850. That is if I can find one.

    You didn't get it from AMD, right?
    They don't give it to you...they don't bind you to their rules :D

    But I guess if you guys want to receive any cards in the future :rolleyes:
