PC Geek,

Did you ask your local Compusas whether they are going to stock Crossfire cards? Those cards are elusive and are super backstocked. Without them, Crossfire is impossible.

Super XP,

When's the R580 cores and when's the RD580 chipset mobos scheduled to appear? Hopefully together at the same time. Wouldn't it be moronic to have R580 graphic cards and not have the best motherboards?

That's amazing PCGeek, because you are still on Stock Cooling....purely amazing..great scores.

PCGeek, you already beats the eVGA Black Pearl 7800GTX 512 MAN !!!!!!!!!

BLACK PEARL with 600Mhz Core.

PC Geek,

I am jealous of you. PC Club... is that a warehouse retail store? There is no such thing here, but there's about 30 times the population of Salt Lake City! Not a single "high end" PC store anywhere. But its real easy if I want to buy a $10 million mainframe... imagine that.

Basically, I would buy a Crossfire setup this instant if it were available. I don't want to buy a X1800XT video card from CompUSA and then suffer like hell having to look for a Crossfire card locally. I'm not going to be locked into anything I don't want. I'm not going the internet route, and its not available anyway because the cards are all gone.

Supreet,

What are the scores on that Black Pearl thing, which needs a water cooling setup BTW ?

Ian, the RD580 & R520 will come out together in Late January 2006.

Here is a link.

Quite acurate info compared to what I am hearing here at ATI's head quarters ;)

Can't wait to get some of those R580's.

PC Geek,

Damn. The closest one to me is in Pittsburgh heh. I wish I had something like that over here. All I have is CompUSA.. there are lots of them.. about 20. Then there are the typical mom and pop stores. I ask for mobos, they tell me Socket 754 is the cutting edge lol.

Wow, PCGEEK that looks sweet man. I am glad you enjoy your X1800XT :) Boy I can't wait to get one. Oh, I have in my hand the Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego. I love this CPU, and the retail box is nice & neat.

All I am doing right now is finnishing my super xp custom PC project & waiting for my X800GTO2 just in time to water cool it, mod it & OC the crap out of it. This should tie me down until the R580 & RD580 come out.

Take Care,

Let's get some facts straight. The GeForce 7800GTX 512MB version does not cost 1000$. If it does, you are being RIPPED OFF.

Newegg is selling them for 749$:
