Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread
i picked up my evga gtx280 FTW today. popped it in. ran first level of crysis, then one level of cod4 and some f.e.a.r. never went over 77c. so i'm happy with that. i was nervous the first few minutes hoping it wouldn't hit 100 and have to rma it. so i played an hour and half straight and no issues...............very happy. now to try some other games.
people have been complaining about the noise but i never even noticed the card was running. compared to my previous ultra i never noticed it being louder. maybe i haven't stressed it enough. but will find out eventually when i do a few hours of gaming straight.
