It should be about 10% faster than a gtx580 but the gtx580 goes for about $428AR shipped now on newegg.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-073-_-Product
I'd go for a single gtx580 card thats 10% slower and 99$ cheaper, with no crossfire worries any day.
This card needs a 75$ price cut to be feasable.
Agreed! Just a niche product.. and the board designer wants to be compensated for all of the hard work.
The 5970 is also going for much cheaper (second-hand).
