It is about the same price as the nVidia GTX 570, which it trounces.
Sure the best of the best at this point in time is the GTX 690 but at $1600, A little out of my budget.

Decided to ditch the card, as most of the games I will be playing at this time, the on die Intel HD 4000 graphics is enough.

I will be waiting for a few price drops in games and then may look into a discrete GPU for ~$500 then. Basically put the difference in what I actually needed into better cooling, sound card, more HDD capacity and a second SSD for RAID0.

I hate people touching my desktop screen there is no need, a touch screen as a desktop would drive me postal.
