To be honest, this card is almost an X850XT all over again. Two months after buying this card, you will feel like an idiot after you discover you've blown your money on an obsolete card thats depreciated at over $200/month.

SM3.0 has been around for two years now, since the NV40 release in 2004, and SM4.0 cards are due so soon that this thing is pointless. R600 is expected in the November-February timeframe, with the G80 expected around the same time, maybe a bit later.

Just like X850 owners discovered they had purchased the winning entrant in the race, after the race had already ended, this will follow the same course.

To be fair, a 7950GX2 is an even worse investment than this piece of junk, so make an effort to avoid both of them.
