Default Overkill?

So i think this overkill IMO. Honestly though i think this should have taken over instead of SLI. I dont like the huge cards though, but better than SLI.

Its only 512 because of both cores. ITs 256 a core just like regular GTs.

Not only is it overkill, but a 7800gtx would outperform it fot cheaper.

For that price, i'd just get a 1800XT or a 7800GTX 512mb. It would kill that fat *** card.

a, it's ugly
b, it's expensive
c, why not just go with a 7800.

I doubt it really "outperforms" it. I've heard sli'ed 6800 gt's come close, but idk if it could "Outperform" it. Meh
