Yep I know, just adding to your point. Amazingly enough, I've seen people that harp on the gtx580 "not having enough VRAM for 57x10 gaming" say ATi's single gpu surround is "a huge advantage!". Out of 1.5 gb of VRAM and any existing single gpu surround, I could tell you which is far more limited.(hint: it isn't 1.5gb). Now if I were looking for the fastest card next week, obviously these are it.
