Absolutely! What he did getting an X850XT PE would be like an Nvidia fan getting a GeForce FX 5950 Ultra for $360, which is still the standard price of the card. If you know anything about the FX 5950 Ultra, you know it was a rip-off from the beginning.

X850XTPE for $600... Can you say 7800GTX for $470?

Or Dual 6800GTs (overclocked to Ultras) for $520...?

I would love to have an FX 5950ultra but not for that price.

Why would you ever want to have a FX 5950Ultra?
