Would you pay $1000+ for a video card?

I love my gaming rig, I'm fairly consistent about upgrading the parts so that I can run the latest games smoothly. However, I'm not one that needs to be on the bleeding-edge of technology just to play my games.

Apparently Overclockers UK seems to think that there are enough people out there willing to shell out every last dollar that they have in order to get the newest and best. They are currently taking pre-orders for an overclocked BFG 8800 Ultra for £528, which if I have done my math right, that's about $1054.

How many of you out there are willing to drop that kind of cash just for a video card? I'm going to make a wild guess and say not many of you would. Besides, if you need that much power, just buy the 8800 Ultra and overclock it yourself. That'll save you over 200 bucks.
