On the average 10% extra performance for $750.00 dollars more:rolleyes2

It is a nice technical achievement but the price is seriously ridiculous.

I thought this would come in at $1,000 dollars not $1,500.00

This card is a small building needs stopper so it doesn't break the PCI-E slots.
Dimensions 13 " x 6.2 " x 2.5 " Inch

6.2" Tall weights in at 5.5lbs.

2 of these in my Rampage III Extreme would be sexy the light bill not so much.

I don't think they care about "competing" with this series. They are cards for the "I want the best card and money is no object" crowd. They don't plan on selling any to the "Is this card a reasonable value" people.

4 vanilla gtx 580's in 4 way sli is $1000 cheaper than two of those! like you said rollo, the e-penis crowd for this card! They would attract more people at that price if it only had 3gb per gpu.
