*drooling*

Looks like my GTX295 might go one sale... but we'll see how the 300-series from Nvidia stacks up against this.

I don't know about these cards and Folding. ATI's stream processor implementation has always been inferior to that of Nvidia's on a one versus one basis which is why they need more to get the job done. I would expect no more than a 80% increase in folding capability over a standard HD 4870 which isn't really saying much considering what Nvidia and Intel both have in the pipeline.

The Hunt for Red October begins...

Seriously, that is one damn good looking card. An all red setup would give me an e-boner.
