Default Re: [SPC] XFX GTX480 up for Preorder! Pricing revealed!

Unless NVIDIA's next-gen can match the Radeon 5870 in offering low GPU temps and fan noise, I won't be interested.

I despise having to use headphones to drown out fan noise from a graphics card running at full-speed, such as the GeForce GTX 295.

I'm aware that the GeForce GTX 295 is based on a dual-GPU, but NVIDIA's single-GPU cooling solutions have been very effective.

Cooling three billion transistors, without water-cooling, is a huge challenge, but time will tell.

Can't wait for the reviews!
