The 5870 is much closer to the GTX 470 in both performance and price than it is to the GTX 480.
I don't know about this- always dicey to compare multi GPU to single, no matter what brand.

Looks like nVidia are on the right track with the drivers.

$292 and $440 sounds more reasonable for a top end card. I remember paying like $405 shipped for my GFFX 5950U back in the day.

Only the dual-gpu cards, or cards that come with water blocks, should be priced at or above $500 imo.

Remember the X1900 XTX?

I loved my X1900 XT but the XTX was a rip off.
