I really regret not pulling the trigger on 2 EVGA 480s on Tigerdirect last week. Guess I'm just gonna have to stick with the less demanding stuff like DX9 console ports and Bad Company 2 until I can get a hold of the 480s.
I was apprehensive about temps until I started seeing positive end user feedback. After seeing some trusted users results, there was no way I was missing out.
These really are excellent cards. I'm very happy with them
