I was expecting it to be about £260/70 even with a better cooler £300 seems a bit steep.

Nvida might even drop the price of the 570 or maybe the 580 now in response to this, they usually drop their prices when AMD out performs them.

the price is right tbh

£130-40 x2 + the lucid on board chip.

totally forgot about this card in the mist of buying a new one.

Very nice review Bryan, I agree that the heat pipes could do with a little bit of elbow greece. Do you have the poor crossfire in unigine down to drivers or poor compatibility? Seems odd that it can't compete with 6870CF when that's exactly what it is..

Good performance there. Price seems spot on IMO. Shame it just looks so cheap as most AMD cards do!
