I'll get my two EVGA GTX 480 superclocks next week from the Egg. I'm still keeping my SabrePC pre-order though because a couple buddies of mine are looking to buy as well, and I'll just sell the extras to them.

I have my GTX 470 installed right now. Works great! It does run HOT!! When I run MSI Kombustor it gets to 93C with the fan at 70%. But I knew it was gonna run hot before I got it. So far, so good. :)

I got both of mine today :D I did a reformat and went to activate my OS...well, MS has blocked it. I called and they said it was blocked because it was pirated :(

I bought from a guy at [H]....I'm trying to contact him via email but I don't think he'll reply.

Oh well...live and learn. I'll probaly run Vantage but I wont load any games until I get a legit copy of win 7 64.

Damn, that sucks. I must admit, I would only buy a retail version second hand. Good news about your Fermi's though. I'm looking forward to your impressions.

I generally do because the OS gets so full of crap just from general running. Doing a clean up never gets rid of the bulk of it.

Going form ATi to NV I think you should...there's always something left behind with ATi, don't need any conflicts.

Plus I love a fresh install :D

Sticky btw:p
