Nice performance (an actual review with numbers is here) but, at 1,000 = $1770.0 CDN, Asus must be out of their minds!!

That review was horrible. Not any really taxing games in there and a poor comparison of other cards.

LOL - for that price you can build a system FFS ! That is overkill for the type of games you have on a PC now - way overkill really - 4GB - power hungry - and free radiator for the winter, you could probably heat your entire room in the winter - yeah with the handful of half decent games on the PC, I wouldn't spend thousands of $ on a card like this.......
