Kudos to them for not pushing marginally better products on us, at a premium. I love it when nvidia go and make a huge leap, but it also happens just after I get comfy with a rig.
I wouldn't get too happy w/nVidia just yet, while this could finally be the solution we all wanted, it could also be another FX5800, I've got some money put away for this beast though, we'll see if she's everything we hoped.
