ByeBye GTX280, Hello 8800GTX
 
just got back from the store, GTX280 has been returned, got full refund of $650+tax. Everyone that bought the card for full price should return it. Soon the card will be most likelly at $400 dollars.

Is there a reason as to why you returned it? Driver issues? Overheating? 3d detection issues?

Or was it simply the price?

Didn't they buy CompUSA?

Huh. I wonder how long it would take Bigman to run the TigerDirect loop.

Anyway, good job getting your $650 back. Now you can get an R700!

Not before CompUSA closed most of its stores. IIRC, Tiger just purchased the name rights.

i might, need to see more reports, benchmarks, so far only few games have been benchmarked. plus idle temps are insane.

or i still might get GTX 280, would be hard to say goodbye to nHancer
