    My personal opinion is, this is very expensive for an extra 256MB of GDDR3 Ram, but, I guess, I will have to wait for some official benchies before I can make a conclusion.

    $850?? That's absurd, I got both my 6800GT PCIe's for less than that . . .

    Now, who's gonna be willing to spend 1700$ on vid cards?
    I highly doubt the 512mb card will outperform 2 6800U's

    $850?? That's absurd, I got both my 6800GT PCIe's for less than that . . .
    Yeah, same feeling here. Just got 2x 6800U for 900$.

    Wow, how much 256mb costs them? 5 cents? or even less! Bringing the price up 75$ would already have been too much...
