Default How's this v-card?

Anyone have a 7950 GX2? It looks pretty sweet, but I'd like to hear from people who use em.

I'm going to be brief.

Waste of money.

Will be obselete upon direct x10's arrival.

I would buy something more conservative for now.

EXACTLY, well stated. If you want a high end card, spend $200 less and get a 1900XTX which is around the same performance IN LESS u play games at 2500+ x 1600+ resolutions
