    I have seen the specs and have seen the benchmarks... But the big question is what price will they retail at? I heard rumor that they would be cheaper than the 7800gtx but couldnt grasp why??? :confused:

    *cough* pinched from a google search:

    The Geforce 7900 GTX 512 card is set to cost €549 in Europe. Some partners, however, plan to price them higher. The guys like EVGA and BFG and partially XFX always like to price their cards more than the others.

    The Geforce 7900 GT is set to cost around $299 in the US but Europeans will be able to buy this card for a more realistic €329. It is close enough anyway, but I think that different partners will price them differently.

    I've read that, if that's anything to go by, then the 7900GTX should be £376, hopefully that's VAT inclusive, otherwise we're talking over £400, from sources I heard it wouldn't be. :confused:

    I posted the prices earlier today for XFX cards, £319+VAT for GTX and £215+VAT for GT XXX these are not rumors that is the price, and like I said earlier I'd imagine OCUK to be slightly more expenisve than this to take advantage of first day buyers.

    The GT and GTX should be released today. Every source I have ever read states this.

    On the 23-24 the GT and GTX Duo cards come out and the QuadSLI generation begins.
