Of course! Dual 256 bit gpu's................My original mindset then remains. Rediculously overpriced cards! Chicken bone reinserted into my gullet! Choke.....choke....cough....choke. However, the fact that they are side by side (2 cards in one) is an intriguing change. If they can get these down to the $400 mark they might have something to crow about.

nah it's definitely the fastest card out. It's just that it's so darned expensive.

The 9600GT SLI setup scores almost the same and you can get a pair of those for about 200 quid

but i have a DS3R mobo i need to put to use, it would cost me the same amount of money to get a 780 mobo and 2 9600 as it would cost to just buy the card on it's own

just this way i haven't got a mobo sat around
