Try it in DX10 and let us know if that seems / benchmarks / feels faster. At least even the playing field with your last card.
Yeah, it does run a little better in DX10, but its still not a whole lot different than my 260. At least the load times are better than in DX11 though. I wonder if they'll ever fix that bug.

Meh... I'm still on the fence.

I think if I was totally happy with at least one aspect of this card I'd keep it for sure, but after selling my 260 I'll probably have around $180-$200 into this GTX 470. If I'm not happy with it, that's a waste of money.

EDIT: LOL, I just remembered that I took the side off of my case while playing this game. So the 81C load temp I reported earlier was with an open case...
