Just clicked the confirm order button on a PALiT GTX280 ( $399 US with MIR ) and a new full tower case @ Newegg.
I just couldn't pass up the $399 deal. Plus I simply love nHancer so couldn't go back to ATI even though the 4870 is a awesome card.
I'll post a follow up post once I have everything install
......Looking forward to changing hardware
Thanks ATI for the low nVidia prices!
PS - Hoping there isn't a temp. problem with my GTX 280......but I am worried about it, and will be the first thing I test,
