Let's get the party started!

all the naysayers, stay out, don't ruin it for everyone.

Just ordered me two EVGA 480 GTX superclocked. I also got my EVGA classified 760 and I7 930 coming next week. Gonna be an interesting week.

Congrats, here in the Netherlands no luck of scoring one yet.

For later, if you get it:

How is it, some gains with the latest drivers? Is SSAA already supported via nHancer?
How does GTA do, you now have the needed vidram, without the need of the ristriction hack, which loads the textures bad anyway.

I'm planning top get two myself. I think in a few months it will be fighting the HD5970 in stead of the 5870, due driver improvements.

This thing excels in dx11 with high AA.

Fermi is a promising base for further GPU's. It looks very futureproof with the strong tessalation perf.
