Well 1. I'm waiting for the new patch from DICE. According to some Nvidia owners the latest patch hosed nvidia cards performance a lot. ( I dunno I had my HD5870 at the time) 2. waiting for Nvidia drivers to mature, I know ATI had 6-7 lead time but thats Nvidia's own fault. Hoping they can sort things with their drivers soon.

I may grab a 2GB card and just water cool it again. My last one was doing 1Ghz core, I'm sure I can sell this for a good amount still. I'm torn between waiting and going back right now for the reasons I mentioned above. IMO the GTX 480 has more potential than a HD5870 at this time. Will it be unlocked? Time will tell.
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
