I'm not ordering anything until the mid range arrives and its not a Paper launched product.

If I had the options, it would probably be XFX or ASUS.

This is what i was thinking, i really think the 7950 vs 7970 is going to be exactly the same as the 6xxx series was. 7950 will outsell the 7970 simply due to cheaper and overclock to the same. They pushed back the 7950 launch so all of us who want the "new" toy will buy at premium lol so they can recoup from bulldozer fiasco.

As for brand i have always bought XFX.. but this time i want to go MSI or Sapphire just for the cooling. However i think we will have to wait for gen 2 cooling for a month or 2. I have never kept a card for more than 2 years.

Oh boy. If the cost of buying one is that high for resell, I can't imagine what the actual prices will be.

You're not allowed to compare different generations of cards and argue prices along with it. When NVIDIA GTX 700 series comes out, THEN you can argue price. If the GTX 780 or whatever the hell they call it comes out at GTX 580 prices, then you can compare it.

I'm waiting for the XFX 7990 but the 7970 Black Edition looks tempting.
