Have a new Cosmos S case Corsair 1000w PSU and an EVGA GTX 280. Will go SLI with them at a later date. Can't wait to try this out.

Just ordered the EVGA SC 280 from Newegg. The price change is what was the determining factor on the decision to upgrade. No way was I going to pay what the price was at the beginning.

There is a double bonus for me getting this also. I always kick down my stuff to my daughter's computer (as she is a gamer too). She had my previous kick down 7900GTX. So now I get the upgrade from my 8800GTX to the 280 and she gets the upgrade from the 7900GTX to the 8800GTX. My daughter always gets the killer deal of getting it for free. Damn, I wish my dad was into computers/gaming so I could get his kick down stuff!

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the 7900GTX.

Try forcing off vsync in the CP and see what you get.

I am getting 51FPS when it first loads, or that is the first orientation. That's 1920x default settings. You should get over 40FPS with a stock GTX 260 @ 1920x or higher FPS @ a lower res.

Excuse the crappy quality

Got it for 329.99 shipped, valid for $30 mail in rebate





Also, this thing BARELY fit into my case, I had to force the hard drive cage back to get it in.
