    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    You can't compare to EOL cards... otherwise a 5870 would be the best buy of all time

    You should be hired by the green marketing team. Your spin-fu is awesome!

    Don't stop there, go further - it's almost 100% more expensive than a GTX460. Gonna have to be one fast card.

    Ok then...almost 40% more than a 5870, better be one fast card.

    But why not compare with a pair of 460's? That would be faster, right? I don't see why a card available in retail at a discounted price can't be compared to a day one release.

    I don't care who makes a better card, just the value.

    Because price grows exponentially in relation to linear performance increase. Why not wait for reviews and just compare it to cards it directly competes with?

    And just like that, all the tags are gone.

    The only thing that worried me about the 6970 was the price tag if it was as the rumors suggested " 450$ " then that wouldn't be a very appealing card.

    Now this is out of the way, we need some serious benching CFX and all I need to buy new Card/s soon.

    Yeah $450 would've been bad, but $370 is nuts. 5870 pricing pre-gouging...

    Supposedly Gibbo @ OCUK has already sold more stock of 69xx cards in the few hours he's had it up than all the 570's or maybe it was 580's since their release. Impressive.

    I guess price really does matter a lot

    Ok guys I have a stupid question and forgive me if I sound like an idiot...
    But how do I hook up the card if it has a 6 and 8 pin connector? My PSU only has two 6 pin connectors...(PC P&C 750W)...

    Does the card come with some sort of adapter or am I SOL?

    They have 4 pin molex adapters in the box, but to be honest you should get a new psu.
