    and what stores (or websites) as I hear the US will only get 100 of 999, I'll have the $1500 in a week or two (tax return) and will be in a position to get one and it would be nice to know ahead of time as I'm sure retailer site camping will be involved lol

    1500.00 USD to have the fastest card on the planet. I am thinking about it. my case has the spare vent for it in the back.

    Fancy but not very useful. It's not even close to a pair of 7970 about OCin and price.
    Also it seems that connecting it to a H2O custom loop would be quite complicated.
