Default Re: With 480's Updated Drivers?

The 295GTX is a dual GPU card, so that's a different story
Dual GPU video cards typically have more unlocked potential at launch.

I said I would upgrade my system in 6-9 months. I'm getting a GTX480 now. (I'd get anything but a GTX480 in 6-9 months from now. You make me sound really stupid! JK. I chose the GTX295 over the GTX285! I sent my GTX280 back to NewEgg and chose the GTX295 over the GTX285. I'm still laughing at ppl that disagreed because of Micro-Shuttering! Funny ppl!)

An HAF930 Case will solve any fears I may have had when it comes to preventing a problem that the GTX480's heat might cause. And I've wanted one anyway for quite some time.

And as far as them being the best, well, I did buy the first 8800GTX ever sold on the Compusa's website. And as a result, I'll always be one of their biggest fan.

Power-wise, all I have to do is repeat, "80+ Gold PSU". You know which one. Right?

Oh, and i meant no disrespect Gaco. I don't care about which is better when it causes nothing to be accomplished due to egos, so don't take anything i ever say as anything but I'm stupid, English wise.
Hey whatever makes you happy, go for it

I don't agree with it being a wise or necessary decision to buy a 480GTX when you can have a substantially faster 2x5850 or 5970 for just around the same price of a 480GTX. Even if I was only able to buy Nvidia for some reason (probably psychological ), I would probably wait for the refresh. But if you've already made up your mind, then go for it and be happy with it!
