And i'm at spot 23-27 from that certain supplier, so those poor souls who are further in list (my supplier says there are over 300 orders on list) will have to wait a long, long time.
I'm sorry ATI, but you should either have scrapped the Dell order, or postponed the launch by a month. This is a stupid joke on us, customers.

Bring on the 5870 2GB!

yeah but the 295 uses 2gb of gddr3, which is equivalent to 1gb of gddr5

No matter the gddr3 or gddr5 memory types, the relevant is the memory bandwidth. GTX295's memories are able to transfer 224GB/s and HD5870's, 154GB/s. However, HD5870 has much more GPU power -- I believe in 2,7 TFlops --, against 1,8TFlops of GTX295.
The size memory matters more to heavy resolutions. ;)

I read that the 5870 uses SuperSampled AA, no adaptive trilinear filtering and angle-independent AF. If so it's doing a lot more than the cards it's being compared to, so even equalling the effectively dual 4870-X2 is a decent feat. I love the power consumption but the thing's way too big, I think 9" should be plenty personally. I can't wait to see what the 5700 series of cards will be like, no FX dust-busters I hope LOL!

Also heat and noise of the stock cooler - will comments on these be added?
Power consumption was impressive but I did hope for more performance (even though I know I shouldn't have).
