Oh and when are 6990 and gtx 590 are goming out? would you expect the price for 580 drop to around 400 than?

Thanks!

That's not a Bad Idea at all..I'm seeing the GTX 460 prices dip into the $160 -170 range, so two of those would make an excellent choice and deal right now.

Now, to talk about this review, The Frozr III is an excellent cooler and an improvement over the predecessor, but a lot of the test still favors the 560, which would be my choice .

But I'm in anticipation.. for the NDA to expire so that Marco can "Release the Antilles"..I mean "The Kraken"..

@Sergeimm - We're spread out across the US, but Dave and I are both east coasters...

As for your other questions, they will be answered in due time. :)

Nice review,...it's obvious that you guys put a lot of work into these reports. It really shows, and is a good reference tool when I have questions that need answers. Thanks,...

I had a 4 paragraph response to this article ready to click 'post' and the page refreshed on me and wiped it all out. [8o|] (maybe the gods are telling me not to be so long winded)

So lets try again.

I think that your observation about spending just a little more and getting the HD6970 instead is a good idea. If the price adjusts on the HD6950 card reviewed, then it would be the one to get.

I've been using my XFX Radeon HD-6870 Black in a Phenom-II X2 545 Callisto system with a real cheap (I mean BASIC) ASRock Mainboard, and it's surprisingly good!

I think that the Radeon card is the reason why too.

I'm still enamored with PhysX and Cuda, but these Radeons do deliver the goods.

That definatly a nice card ! I always want the best but my wallet always wait wait wait but I do want to get a new build going I,ve just got a new motherboard the Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H looking forward to putting together a new rig and see how the board performs but It will take me a little time starting with the CPU its time for me to jump up to something at the top so Im going to get the Phenom II X6 BE 1100! After that just going to do a little at a time, its got onboard video but I want a Radeon series 6900.This would be a good choice I think soon as the price drops! Good reveiw!

So are you saying AMD has it right then.......lol.

Seriously though, thanks for the info. It was cool following this part of the thread as I learned something.

And that is why we are here right?

The MSI press release talks about a P/S switch to change the fans from Performance to Silent, which seems to re-jig the temp / speed profile for the fan control.

1/ Did you test this functionality ? If so, what did you learn ?

2/ Is the switch a physical switch, and if so, where is it located on the card ? If the card is inside my chassis I'm not going to be opening it up just to flick this switch ! But I do like quiet ! Or is the switch a software switch inside Catalyst Control Center ?
