LoL, i feel much better reading these threads, after I came to my senses and returned the 5830...i just couldn't justify it...so, i'm still running my 4860...

heck, with my 4860, i just finished medal of honor limited edition 2010, using 1680 x 1050 @ highest settings...not even a glitch or hiccup or lag at all...smooth as butter...

yeah, i'll see what the benchmarks and reviews say about the 6xxx series cards, before jumping on the band wagon...not sure if I'll even grab a 58xx card either, after the price drops/adjustments...we'll see...

The official launch is not today.

Publications can post pics of the cards (with heatsink on) as well as talk about some minor Llano details but everything else is being kept under wraps for the time being.

Me too.

NCIX is doing a special for 5850 for 249.99-30AR.
Hope the low end 68XX will be around $200
