I will probably feel differently though once I start playing stuff like GTA4 and Metro when my 2nd card arrives tomorrow. For some reason, I always expect a bit more from my new videocards than they can deliver.
Im not at all interested in SLI. Play GTA and Metro with the single 480 and report back, I'm interested in more HD5870 vs GTX 480 thoughts from a regular user than from a reviewer. On the fence about moving to a GTX 480 from OC'd HD5870.
