Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread

So I couldn't help myself from picking up one at current prices. Sig updated with an EVGA 280GTX SuperClock edition. So far I'm very impressed. 100% fan is pretty loud but idles around 53c. I've seen as high as 89c with the fur benchmark but in gaming it hovers around 74c. I now keep it at 75% fan and it stays around 75c in gaming. Performance is pretty amazing. I haven't done a lot of testing yet but I've listed some of my results below. I think it's obviously time to upgrade the rest of my system. I haven't benched Crysis yet but it's very playable at 1600x1200 DX10 Very High 2xAA, 27fps avg. So far everything else I've test just runs stupid fast@2048x1536 with large amounts of AA, Witcher, UT3, GOW, FEAR, MassEffect, Bioshock, Frontlines, Medusa and Cascades demos, COJ is very nice as well at 1600x1200. Oblivion keeps crashing on me but during the few min I did play it was very smooth @ 1600x1200 4xAA 16af. I'm off to try out TDU and GRID and a few others.
