What do you guys think about the MSRP? $320 or so? Definitely looks like it's going to be a nice card.

The retail price have to be around 400$ for this card to be worth it IMO. Or people will just grab 2 460 that have more stock OC and will OC better instead.

I am curious to see its performance, i doubt i'll drop down from 560s for that however having 2GB of memory will allow it to direct compete with memory bandwidth excessive games such as DA2.

Good idea by EVGA to produce a single card solution that should out any perform current single card nvidia offering for over $100 less. Waiting on the HWC review to see the actual performance before I give any praise though. :D

I second that, hopefully the Review Gods can get one of these on the table. If its priced right and performs well without driver issues or such then I am for sure in its market.

As are quite a few other people I would imagine.

Espically Folders.

I believe that each GPU will have dedicated access to 1GB, no?

Why the HELL didn't they make this card shorter! Like come on! It couldn't have been that difficult... Quite the interesting product though.
