I'm interested to hear NVIDIA's excuse for not giving Gabe a card.

From what I've read, it's modestly above a stock 7970 at high resolutions and does really well at lower (1080p is sort of its sweet spot). It's basically even with the 7970 for tri-monitor setups. Thus, gamers with a single monitor probably have the most to gain (if you've been holding out).

I think the biggest bonus is that they're at ~$500 which undercuts the 7970, meaning the 7xxx series will have to drop in price to remain competitive with NVIDIA. In turn, I'm guessing NVIDIA will try to position its products at better price-points. Thus, prices will drop and gamers will win either way.

Me too, as they don't answer my emails or pickup my phone calls. They are still boycotting us, even though they said this wouldn't happen again...
