Isn't that a followup to their "stolen" LE card video?

Yeah, good vids. Price on that card will keep even most enthusiasts away. Like the way it comes with the gun case and bag. While I like XFX, not sure whether this will be better or worse than the Asus card or any other high end setup. Warranty will be though.
