    As of this post, Bens currently lists in the description: "1536 CUDA cores" ... I thought CUDA was nVidia only?

    I wouldn't mind going for this, then "Red Mod" it, although the word is that you need VRM and memory HS, and even good need air movement across to insure robust OC's. But when you do that these time have great potential.
    But It would hard to think I void my warranty of this XFX. My luck it would be like most XFX stuff and have a glitch, even though it an AMD built unit with their XFX stickers. I suppose stress it for a couple of weeks putting up with the noise if all goes then go for it.

    There are not enough reviews and data on it. Overheating, noise, and high power consumption seem to be the problems. Also the beta drivers that hold me back from getting this. Nvidia went through a Holiday price cut, when does AMD do that?

    Most all problems are overblown. It also only uses about 50w more than a 780GTX. Drivers are fine. Most complaints so far are from nvidiots or shills who don't even own one.
