Well lets see.............look back at when the 8800GTX was launched, I had one from launch and specifically remember how much better the card got after some driver revisions and it was most certainly more than 2fps average.
I can understand some of you guys being irritated about the price but honestly some of the things that you and neckro are saying makes it seem as though you guys have never owned a high end video card from its launch date before and are completely unaware of what a difference optimized drivers can make so comparing a card with optimized drivers to a brand new GPU with unoptimized drivers is pretty unfair to be honest with you, after a couple of months if things have not improved much then you might have a legit argument but until then no one knows what the GTX 280 is truly capable of.
You can say what you like about it but when it comes to high res with high amounts of AA and AF this is the card to have.
