Default Re: Replaced my 5870 with a 480. WTF LOAD TIMES?

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.
I much prefer the 480s and find them to be faster across the board (No issues with regards to smoothness either).

I played BC2 SP for a little while this morning and it was running perfectly (257.29 Beta).
