And I think the 40-50% faster claim is just Nvidia PR. Just like the ATI PR claiming 50-60% faster than GTX580. Probably some canned bench they like to run that favors the hardware for some reason.

I expect it to be faster but not that much faster. Probably around 15-20%.
Yes, I like to turn up the AA too. I play everything in Surround, except BF3. That i play at 120hz. For Surround 2Gb, just won't cut it i'm afraid.
