Thanks for the broadcast. Hope Dave is doing better soon and the Skype gods begin shining on you again.

I have to say I can't wait to get my hands on one of the GTX 680's they really layed the smack down with these cards this time around. Although I agree that AMD has something up their sleeves.

I downloaded Wing Commander but have not had the chance to install it :P

Anyone happen to be going to PAX East in Boston? I will be there Friday and Saturday.

Great webcast guys! I have to agree with the iPad3, the display is amazing! So if the 680 is "mainstream" what is the price going to be on the enthusiast card???? I'm actually more interested in the mobile version, very exciting stuff. Powerful without sucking down the juice.

I have to ask......how much was Pual's bid???

I think it was around $100 or so.
