Near 8800 prices. As I dont understand the ATI branding proccess (unlike nVidias GTX/GT/GTS/GS/etc) I cant bet in a more specific way.
Do you mean which are the high performance ones? For ATi it's usually XTX, then XT, then Pro then maybe GT or GTO or something.


Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

The thing is meant to compete with the G80 so I would say $600ish for the top model.

I think the R600 might be better than G80
If that turns out to be true, would ATI make R600 more expensive?

Well, ATi's are generally the workhorses... case & point... can't do folding@home on an NVidia GPU... not even G80 (not yet at least)
