Someone is having trouble containing themselves! :D

I WILL be happy and I MAY be dropping $1000 on new GPUs... just depends on how much of a bottleneck (if noticable) PCIe 2.0 8x scaling is...

Depending on final retail price and performance increase, I might switch back to the green team for a bit of folding power and heat :P

Depending if the 680 is faster than dual 480/570's I may switch to one 680.

I'm very much so looking forward to the release of this, hope my 570 2.5GB still will have some sort of resell value whenever the 6xx launches.
