I've never even owned an ENTIRE computer system that cost more than $900!

:lol:




That being said, it is an awesome card.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Well when you look at the cost of the EK block and then the cost on a reference HD 6990 the price is right on the money for what you are getting. Its fast and it runs cool but it does have a price tag for that performance. Honestly if I ran a reference 6990 every day while gaming I would go to water cooling just to shut it up under load. That goes for any 69XX and 68XX series reference AMD card for that matter.
