This card is, in a worst case scenario, a GX2 without disadvantages. MIN frames and overall framerate consistency are much better than with a GX2 though!

Awesome and congratulations dude.

It does scale almost as good, you just need to have the cards loaded down.

Now thats odd. Drastically lower performance from newer drivers? Like 18% just off the top of my head.

Did they lower performance of Gx2's via drivers so the GTX 280 looked better, or whats going on there?

Just got done installng my GTX280, tried UT3 and Mass Effect, both are now running very nicely at 1920*1200 with 4xAA, also tried world in confict, performance jump there is very nice indeed over my 8800GTX, I might have to replay it all over again.

Will try some other games and overclocking tomorrow,

Here's my first swipe @ Vantage with a single GTX 280. It was @ 665|2300. Driver 177.35.

Ok, not so happy right now. Tried GTX 280 with Crysis and the noise from the fan/card is ridiculous, fan continually spins up and down which makes it even more irritating, plus there’s a weird stutter to the game, oh and to top it off it reached 105C

I might return it, this just isn’t acceptable, much worse than even the fan on my old X1900XTX and hotter.

I was just trying Jericho with AA enabled. Heavy smoke plus AA would drop my old 8800GTX to 32FPS at times. Lowest I've seen so far with this card is 54FPS @ 1680x with AA and all high. Most often I am between 65-91FPS.

AoC with bloom enabled all high @ 1680x 8xAA|16xAF has been 42-120FPS. That's in Khemi and Khopshef. FPS near water is way better with this card. Game's been running smooth.

I also tried the pool room in TRL with next gen and AA enabled @ 1680x. I shoot from one end to the other to catch all the HDR. My 8800GTX did 46FPS there, this card does 90.
