    I've been wondering what ASUS is doing as far as the graphics card area of gaming. Correct me if I am wrong but I have a feeling that ASUS used to have the best and fastest cards several years ago. Nowadays, I feel like they are lagging behind. That is of course my personal opinion but I will try to explain why I feel that is so. Every time a new card hits the market, ASUS is not the first to come out with a special cooler. The clock speeds are also lagging behind significantly when compared to other brands. Freshest example - the Poseidon card. Granted, it is a new way to cool your card but other companies have been out with GHz cards for a while now and why would anyone really want to purchase a card that is $100 more expensive (according to some people on the forums... i expect it to be more than that) than a regular 780. Also, the MARS760 - as cool as that card is, and I would love to get my hands on one, i can't justify a $150 premium just because it has a glowing MARS logo on it. MARS is also 2x2GB when it could easily have been a beast which would justify the extra cash if it was 2x4GB. That being said, I feel like ASUS is a bit slow to the market and has been taking the easy way out, relying heavily on the already existing cult of ROG'ers.
    P.S. I almost picked up an EVGA SC ACX for xmas for $500 which is clocked at 967MHz out of the box. I would have had to buy a backplate (another $25) but it still ends up being cheaper than the $550 OC card from ASUS (a mere 889MHz clock). I do love playing around and OC'ing the GPU but it's kinda nice to know you're getting another 5-10% performance increase right out of the box. I seriously hope ASUS steps it up and at least matches the performance of EVGA cards roughly at the same time as those are released. I won't even bring up Galaxy's HOF cards. Seriously though... ASUS=EVGA>MSI>Galaxy>Zotac, etc. Or at least that's how I feel it SHOULD be.
