    Are these still worth it or are we due to hear something about ATI's next release soon?

    ATI 6### series are rumoured to be out last quarter of this year, i have xfire 5870's and i like them. I would say that if you have a case smaller than mine (ATCS840) then in xfire and overclocked they kick out a fair bit of heat if not watercooled or stuck on a ridiculusly noisy fan speed. Not a negative just an observation

    I have a TJ10 so that isn't a problem.

    Only problem is that I'm tempted by an ATI 5970 as well.
