Nvidia has always had pretty good drivers at launch and no card of theirs has received 30% gains. You also need to keep in mind that it could take up to half a year for the perfect drivers to come out and by that time ATI is bound to have something better on the market.
The GTX 480 performs very good right now, but imho it should have outperformed two 5850s in order to be considered a good deal. No amount of updated drivers is going to bring its performance to that level.
It is only $79 extra and NOT
and extra $200!
Where did you get that number from Toss3? Don't answer.
But most important of all, your being off by $121, should remove anything you thought about the price being too high. Right? Or would you like me to tell nV to reduce it another $121 for Toss3's sake?
(jk) Because I'll freaking do it. Don't make me.
