I did my Oblivion grass test I always do with saves. The GTX 280 was 10FPS faster than my old 8800GTX @ 660|2040 and 4FPS faster than HD 3850 Crossfire @ 760|2038.

Recieved My EVGA GTX280 SSC Edition today and wow ,I have to say, I am very impressed.Futuremark Vantage scores have shot up by alot..

8800Ultra(175.16) - P6607
GTX280(177.39 w/no PhysX driver) - P11124
GTX280(177.39 w/NV PhysX driver) - P13123

I had actually been waiting to play the new Vulcano level for Crysis till the new card came so the time had come to really test the card out.I installed the mod without installing the ultra high quality config they suggest to use with it and just decided to turn all graphics settings to very high ,1680X1050,no AA and no Vsync.I played for about 20-25 minutes an noticed no "show-stopper" slowdowns there was a little bit of chugging near the beginning (on the beach) and the frames via Fraps dipped down to about 24 FPS at a few times.I did notice the fan of the GTX280 after playing for the 20 or so minutes but not to the point where it was destracting or in any way loud imo.In checking the EVGA precision tool after exiting the game I noticed that my GPU temperature had maxed out at around 86C.

So far I am very happy with My purchase and Nvidia adding PhysX support recently only sweetens the deal though only slightly because it only works with a benchmark and a game I am not interested in owning.

Is there a trick to getting the 177.39 driver to work correctly? My GPU score is up to 11.3k now in Vantage and my CPU score didn't budge from 177.35. I installed the separate nVidia physics driver too.

Did you install the PhysX driver after the Dispaly Driver

NM, I found it, it's not the one available on nVidia's site.

Ouch. I was wondering that as my GTX is running 648/1026/1620 shader. I get almost 16,000 in 3dmark 06 currently and about 6900 in Vantage performance. My 22" LCD max res is 1680x1050 so for me there is no sense.

The HD4850 CF is looking attractive though.

84 is about what it should be with stock fan.

Guys keep the fan 100% even on idle...that's how i run my 8800GTX SLI setup. If i let fan to be default my temperatures reaches up to 98C, otherwise it's in 82-84C max.
