It looks like the 7950 is just SLI'ing 2 7900GTX for you. I dont mean 'just,' but that its not true 1024mb memory... any comments? am i correct?

Im not sure if thats entirely true but what i do know is that its 2 7900GT's not GTX in one card not two in one slot. It gives the same performance to two 7900GT's basically.

dont know why you people are so worried about vista, It prolly wont be out by the time that dx10's are out. what is ms doing eating twink's all day? how many times have they redesigned vista ( may be a little off topic but anyways) I think the cards overkill. 7800gtx is still prtty much the most id ever think about getting.

if the computer has a DX10 card then chances are it's "uber leet"

WoW...for $1500 you can go quad SLi with two cards......rediculous!!!!! This is a preview of the M80 card. This is what you will be getting. Just like the FX5950 was the preview oaf the 6 series. and now you know how much the M80 are going to cost you. My butt is getting sore just thinking about it!!
