1) when will these 6900 gpus be out on the market?

2)can you run a gtx gpu on an amd board?

3)can you run a nvidia physx card with an ati card (ie. 5870)?

4)crossfire=AMD SLI=intel?

5)anyone know when the Fractal Design Define XL case will be available?

6) in order to play games in 3d using ati cards you only need 1 card that is 3d ready? in order to do it with nvidia cards you need to run two in sli to get 3d?
i know i have more but i cant think of them right now

#1 Not sure, they keep delaying it first it was november 9th, then it was the 22nd, and its still not out.

#2 You can. if it is a crossfire board, you can only use a single NVIDIA card on it unless it has a NVIDIA chipset. Some AMD boards (they are rare and hard to find) Will have NVIDIA chipsets which will support SLI, but they are hard to find. Any AMD chipset will only support Crossfire (AMD chipsets will generally outperform the nvidia ones) SO theres your answer to question 4 as well.

#3 In theory, Ive heard of people doing it, though you can't just plug and play-I know that much, and I wouldn't know where to start to get them to work together, probably custom drivers and a level of geekiness far above my head. (its a dream of mine to get there someday)

#4 I dont know when the fractal design will be out.

#5 your last question, Most ATI cards, to my knowledge, at least to date do not support 3d vision (Im assuming thats what your talking about) except for a few laptop cards. NVIDIA cards starting with the 4xx series support 3dvision provided you have the glasses, and you can do it with a single card. I have a friend with NVIDIA systems and these glasses, and theyre pretty sweet. ALMOST made me switch to NVIDIA. keyword there is ALMOST.
