Windows 7: XFX Alert Stolen 5970 Black Editions

So the only benefit is 6 display ports, over the others being made. This is an obvious enthusiast purchase, and well, enthusiasts aren't too stupid usually. Sli/Xfire, less money, although more power drain...eh. Well obviously it's not worth 10k, not even 5k, arguably 1k, although 6 ports is very nice, and with all the memory needed to support the usage.

Is the idea that the stolen card is the one on ebay, or something? I'm lost, if that's the case, total sham, ebay would be contacted about the stolen goods. So this assumption must be wrong, why is there a card going for 10k? I can't make sense of all this. Maybe I missed a post when skimming through.

It's just a viral campaign to promote the card.

It's not the only card to have 6 DisplayPorts. There's a few 5870s coming out with some as well.
