From someone who's owned the card, you don't know what you're talking about.

The card sells very well; it works in just about every game; it is no more "power-hungry" than 260 SLI is; ATI's drivers are NOT unstable; and it is not that pricey for the performance that you get.

The strongest card prior to the 4870X2 was the 8800GTX. Those sold for 650$ on launch day. The X2 is about 4x as strong and sold for 550$ on launch day. The X2 is a fine value for the money.
