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...
well to be completely honest with you BF BC2 is the worst gaming experience I've had with the GTX 480. Have you tried any other games? GTA IV EFLC gets alot more frames than my HD5870 got. Also, Metro 2033 runs much better. BF BC2 has problems, from what I've read, the last patch has really bombed Nvidia cards FPS. I guess what I'm saying is that I wouldn't base my decision completely on BF BC2.
