As far as Neo-Geo is concerned I think we should follow this advice:

Please don't take the bait of those that troll or continue to deliberately cause disruption. Simply ignore them and report them either by emailing a mod or via the RTM system.

The guy asked a straight forward question.

If you have nothing constructive to add, then don't post! I'm armed with my Easter bonnet and baby oil, so be warned.;)

Thanks mate,some people need to pipe down,shame they cant do it without an admin giving them a warning.
Wow. The apocalypse seems to have happened.

OP, I'm thinking a couple of months.

Yeah ive been reading around and many places seem to suggest April for the 7970 and May for 690,i hope its not as bad as the 590 was.

I found this....

do you see the specs it sais my PSU is ok doesn't it, min spec is 550 W, unless that's for a non OC.

I think it will be £600(599)traditional price for a dual gpu.

hang around...... it's power draw is less than my PSU..... UNLESS it's far more if OCd and i bet it is, finally; it's not worth having if you cant OC anyway, so it's kind of self-defeating

I'ts 550W max draw, no OC.... i dont know, maybe another 100 W with OC..... best PSU is maybe an OCZ 750

That's ok, because that 4gb 680 is the same price and if this remains so, i know which one i'd rather have.....obviously, it's a no brainer, except; i''ll need an extra 100 quid for an upgraded PSU.......this 690 will be the same price as that MSI thingy, but an extra 35 fps so which one would you buy ha ha!

Ive always used dual gpus and ive never had a problem with them that some people get,in the early days of a dual the drivers can be a bit **** but once the drivers mature they perform very well,i get no stutter etc.

If i had problems with them i wouldnt buy them,but i dont.
If these are any good ill be picking up 2 of them and putting them under custom water blocks and putting them in a new Caselabs case that ive just ordered from California.

Dude, you're about to spend £600 on a graphics card. Stop being so cheap and get a PSU to match rather than skimping or taking unecessary risks! :)

well i've got to be careful, because i'm after a plasma too..

no the GTX 690 is value for money, because it's the same price as the latest after market custom 680 4gb, but miles more powerful......... its therefore the GTX 680 that's a rip off

they are both approx 600 QUID, OK say the GTX 690 ends up 50 quid more than this, then it's still good... even if the 680 drops by £100

this is because, the GTX 685 ( out in sept) will also cost you this same 600 quid yet again, but still not be as fast as the OCd 690 at roughly £600 to 650.

we just cant seem to escape from this £600 rip off figure, so if we cant, we'd better get the most powerful card we can at this price, this £600 should be £300.

SLI?....... it'll still cost you 600 quid, 2 x GTX 680s......... to me the dual CPU card makes sense, because it still looks like that i'll have to spend 500 to 600 quid, regardless of what the hell i buy

its bloody scary.... yes, it's foolish too, my mates only game via Xbox and now you know why !!!!!!!!!!

The 690/685 hasn't even been announced never mind priced so stop talking like you actually know how much it's going to cost.

Point still stands:

Also

The 680 isn't a rip off either. It's just priced on its relevant point in the market as it stands today. Can't afford it/don't like it? Then don't buy it. It's that simple.
