Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 460/465/470/480" thread
I know I am not new here but I got two 480 evga sc's from memory express in alberta, canada. Paid $559 cdn each for them back in may. Went from a single 5970 to 480's in sli. Basically because I didn't like having to buy displayport (active) to dvi adapters for a display tech that is niche at best for eyefinity. I don't mean eyefinity in particular but the use of apple's displayport tech is niche (although displayport tech is faster than dvi by one cycle). And I used to own e-dimensional's 3d glasses (had a pair of wired and wireless back in the day) and loved the 3d vision concept. So, I plunged in and got 3 3d monitors for 3d vision surround. Also found out that the 5970 I owned died on the owner within days to weeks of use (no, I didn't overclock!). The owner was told since I bought the cards from australia and the serials were hong kong based that sapphire demanded he ship the card back to hong kong although sapphire has canadian rma offices. They could have even shipped the card for him back to hong kong for that matter. Never touching sapphire at least if there ever was a reason to go back to the red hare called ati/amd. I like my green tortoise, comes up slow but beats that red hare every time!
