    Rip off pre-order price. I have aleady seen the ATI list price as being $599 which equates to £460 inc VAT or 506 euros.

    I could fit it in my case :)
    i have about 10 inches left before hitting the hdd bay

    already have 2x 5870s anyway so no need for it lol :D + single cards are always better than multigpus not to mention the cooling is better also.

    but for those that are just looking for 1 card dam that is a huge moma lol

    Fixed :p

    I'm not sure about the x2, like the old GTX295 vs 2xGTX275s, it's got to be cheaper and more performant than a pair of HD5870s to make it worth while IMO, especially as it's bound to be noisy.
