barely faster than my "crippled" GTX480. I think I can survive skipping this one.

It's a 20% performance boost while using less power than the GTX 480. What's not to like? :D

I think it's great! However it should be called the 485...580 is more marketing than anything else. Overall it looks to be a pretty good step forward for team Green. I am gonna wait and see what team red has to offer, but I'm buying before xmas for sure.

That's a negative. Your current Corsair unit should be enough.

Even if I take the power limiter off, I might want to overclock a little...

Hahah, looks like someone pulled the site...woopsy on their part, lots of fun for us measly regular folk! Pretty awesome the stats, pretty decent upgrade from the 480. Now I have to try and wait until 6900's are out...if I can hold my peace till then, gonna be hard!
