    It's not ready for 5870 yet, which is -25 % upto +160 % faster in gaming tests (Czech Gamer). But it will be soon, it will be ;-)

    Nice price, although I already have a 280GTX so getting one of these aint a big jump for me.

    Why on earth would you do that :confused:

    Anyone that buys one of these, when they full well know the new ATi cards are out on the 23rd needs a severe kick up the arse.

    How does this perform against X-fire 4870?or even 4890 x-fire as i'm guessing they're going to drop in price next week?

    Probably not, but 2x 5870s kick the ass of 2x 295s. thats 2x gpus vs 4 gpus. goes without saying the sheer power of these cards.
