Default Re: What the benchmarks DON'T Tell you about the GTX 280!!!

WAIT!!! Don't listen to these guys. Check the other thread where a bunch of cards including MikeC's have had overheating issues and a few just died already. Seems like some faulty cards made it to public. Also, ATI has the 4870 and 4870 x2 coming within the next month or so. The GTX 280 doesn't eat Crysis like everyone was expecting so there is no real sense in biting right now. Sit it out and see what ATI brings to the table - also Nvidia will have to drop prices to compete so now is the WORST time to buy one. Just hold off.
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
