So has anyone tried Crysis yet? Can't wait to see the "I gained 8 FPS in Crysis over my single 8800GTX, I could've bought a car with the money I spent..." posts. Sorry guys, but thats just too much money for such a slight upgrade.

Hmm I been hearing rumors about a faster card coming. I wonder how much faster this one will be compared to a GTX 280 @ 670-700.
