it has to be final, we're too close from launch and all info converge to thse numbers

can't wait to see the reviews, but nvidia is in trouble IMO with a higher price tag and those "low" clocks

although it looks like nvidia's engineers made a miracle with the size of that dual gpu card WOW, and the fan is a nice upgrade from the noisy blower type and it is much more visually pleasant than amd counterpart. But at the end FPS matter more than anything else when we're talking about top of the line GPUs

One day (when I have money), I might try going with a dual-GPU card. Would require a bit of a mod for my case, though (I'm getting a HAF 912)

Nah, the HAF 912 can support long cards as well. Just remove the drive cage in the middle and you'll have ample room for any GPU.

On topic though, I'm slightly bummed it wasn't released tonight. Was hoping I'd be able to get two nice things in one day

That's my problem, that cage is filled to the top with HDDs in my Lancool PC-K62, just hoping it's not much longer than GTX 580 and fits in my case naturally.
