    After thinking it over, you guys are right. $399 for a 5870 is a pretty good price. It's like what 4870 X2 cost, similar or better in performance, with half the Wattage requirement.

    LOL! It's sad to admit but when I typed my prior post I totally forgot about DX11. For some reason when I looked at the shader count and other specs, i just tuned in 4870 X2... and forgot the rest!

    Not really. My work relies in its nature on heavy multitasking and it would not only help reduce constant minimizing by a lot and have a far better overview at any time over things. When I talk to you online it can blink in the taskbar I don't need it on the desktop at all times :p

    2880 x 900 ... I see no reason why you wouldn't opt for a 30" 2560 x 1600 display instead of that, other than it is curved.

    Especially considering it's $8,000.

    Why few when you can buy THE ONE from JVC

    http://gadgets.softpedia.com/news/The-JVC-DLA-RS400-Projector-Outputs-10-Megapixels-5042-01.html

    (btw. its RS4000 as text says not as like and title say)
    And it's also interesting they already presented SIX high contrast projectors @ CEDIA last week

    http://gadgets.softpedia.com/news/N...rt-up-to-70-000-1-Contrast-Ratio-5044-01.html

    It's all about sixes in those September announcements :sad: Someone thought that too many nines would make us too happy so they twisted all up?

    "Because we support GPU-accelerated physics, our $129 card that’s shipping today is faster than their new RV870 (code name for new AMD chips) that sells for $399." - nVidia

    :roll:


    "President and CEO of NVIDIA Corp. (NVDA) Jen Hsun Huang sells 260,475 shares of NVDA on 09/11/2009 at an average price of $16.07 a share." (link)
