4850 comes out June 25. The 4870 was pushed back to July 8, as was the 4870x2.

I've said I'm not getting a 280 but I just got a nice bonus at work and so I'm testing the waters. The only problem is I game on a 720p HDTV at 1366x768. With a single 8800GTX I can comfortably play at 1366x768 0xAA, VH, DX10. That's not exactly a stressful resolution for something like the 280 but I was wondering how much AA I could expect to apply. Additionally, I've also been thinking of getting a new 1080p TV so I'd like to know what I could expect at around 1080p in VH, DX10 with no AA.
Crysis 1920x1200, Single Card, VH settings
20.67FPS

Crysis 1280x1024, Single Card, VH settings + 4xAA
25.29FPS

So your PSU had enough 8-pins for that?

Was about to ask about that. My PSU has only 2x8 pin PCI-E connectors. Does the Thermaltake have 3. If so very nice.
I have heard a rumour the Cards come with an 8pin connector. Can you please confirm.

Unfortunately the cards don't arrive down here until Friday. Very late getting here this year.

[quote=jAkUp;1682745]Here it is, the EVGA GTX 280. And yes, it is fast, and in some cases a single GTX 280 is faster than Quad SLI.

When you turn on your computer, do the lights go out on your block?

Am I the only one who is disturbed by this??? What happened to 36.8 FPS @ 1920 x 1200 Very High??? I really hope the shoddy fps in Crysis is a driver issue because that's what is keeping me from seriously considering one.

You mean card right, not cards? I see no reason why it wouldn't work.
