Come on $299.99 5850 Toxic

Absolutely Exactly Correct!
Lovin my 5850 though;
2033 w tessellation looks so fantastic.
hmm... I wonder how much it would cost me to get a 480 if I sold the 5850?

Fanboys will buy anything.
Excuse me? I'm not a fanboi. I'm simply after the pros that the 400 series offers. C'mon, aCid, leave the poorly thought out posts to the "guests" and people who signed up specifically to bla bla bla about how Fermi kills babies.

I honest think that Acid guy should be banned at least for a while, reading this thread I am amazed at how much he is allowed to troll without warnings :-(

You can't ban everyone that does not agree with you. I agree that some posts in this thread are borderline trolling, they are not that bad and some people need to stop taking themselves so seriously.

I've never in my life ever seen another computer peripheral that causes so much blatent anger. In the end, it does not matte to most because their minds are made up long before the purchase anything. All I am saying is that both sides need a drink or something because many are making this mole hill into Mt. Everest.

I agree. It makes our lives harder (Staff) as a direct result.

This Launch and subsequent comment threads has really proven to both the staff and members what peoples true colours really are.

So long as we are Dimplomatic without the mudslinging everything is fine usually. This has not been the case as of late and never before have we had to clamp down on the Site as we have now.

Lets keep it civil and all is well.

And Shalolin - no worries, we don't always make Warnings Public Knowledge unless it is to set an example of someone or some issue in particular.

Definitely with you on that one RJ. Usually good constructive discussions on here. Too bad. I hope this isn't the direction the site is taking. There are better discussions going on other sites right now......never thought I'd say that.
