ATI rises once again

ATrHD5970_3-4_lgAMD launched the latest ATI Radeon series today, the 5970.  Sporting 3200 stream processors, and 40nm arc, it’s fast as fuck, and doesn’t chew up a ton of power.  Unfortunately, this also marks the day that top of the line is going to cost you quite a bit more.  IF you can find one (I couldn’t after searching for 3 hours) expect to pay 500-600 bucks.  And thats just for 1.  I would expect the prices to come down a bit closer to fake jesus birthday, but they will still most likely be in the 400+ range.
