I think with the oc'ing it rivals the x1900xt.

Where the **** did you get it, how much, and what are temps? Lol

Just read a review of the card. Water cooling?!?!? They showed high temps which I thought was insane since well, its water cooling! (Temps were 53 idle and 90 load, maybe crappy case cooling?) The oc's they got with the card didnt seem too great but look at those temps. Nice card overall except the price they said. "$570 with $30 mail in rebate". Holy ****!

Too much for any card, no matter how underwhelming it is.

Your either have connections or are just in the area. I should start going to these. My dad has been going to E3 the past couple of years cause he likes computers and video games (hes 53, weird imo) and always gets something for himself and not me. Lol
