My System Specs

Default So, whats the consensus? RV770 and 4890?

The rave via AnandTech: Video Card Buyer's Guide - Spring 2009 is all about "Waiting a week" for their 180-200 buys and the same with the $100 buys.

My guess is the new 4750 and 4890 are about to rip the doors off the price/preformance videocard house, since I havnt read much else in the nV world outside that GTX275 that sounds...meh...at best.

I hope we get some HWC reviews of these real quick! I'm pritty excited (having a P35 board) about the possibilities of RV770 in crossfire, and cant wait for some Canadian reviews.

Anyone else picked up some vibes, or read some interesting articles about these cards?

Think you mean RV790

It'll be interesting to see the reviews for sure. Seems like it'll fit somewhere between a gtx260 and 280 in terms of performance. Which would explain why Nvidia released the gtx275 to compete.

Depending on the price, it could end up being a very popular card.
