Default Re: GeForce GTX 690 Announced!

I see newegg had at least a few ,but for $1200 that is pretty ridiculous.You know it basically a papper launch.And you have to be pretty well off to drop $1200 on a Card when two GTX 680's can be had for a $1000 which is still crazy.What I want to see is a GTX-670 and hope it is like the GTX-470 was to a GTX-480.Plus I would like to see them be agressive and sell them for $349.I know I am dreaming they can't even keep the GTX-680's in stock and if you do find one they have uped the price to $649.They are saying the GTX-670 is supposed to hit the shelves on May 10th.There is a lot of places saying it .I will believe that when I see it actually in stock at $399 and not $500.I might get a couple of those if there performance is great or just wait untill the end of the year since I have three GTX-470 I run at 775mhz/1775mhz at 1.037 and the fans set at 75% so it is torlerable as for as the sound.and just hits 72c with 3DMark11 http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3350665
and 72c in 3DVantage-http://3dmark.com/3dmv/4064983
So they are fast enough to hold me over if they start out to pricey.
