Dude, you are smoking something good; I want some. I have a quad core o/c to 3.4GHZ and tri-sli with o/c 280's and I can't get that. I use Fraps and Crysis is smooth at 1680 by 1050 at around 40 FPS. No way you are getting simiar scores with one 280. Even tri-sli would choke at that level.

Yeah, 1920x1200 is pushing it to get playable at HIGH on a single 280, never mind MAX.

Well... I got my EVGA 260 last weekend. When I booted up it looked good at the dekstop, so I fired up Clear Sky, and it totally crapped out. After that I had artifacts even in the BIOS. So I had to return it....

I'm back! Ok, so I replaced the card I returned with an EVGA Superclocked Core 216, and it's pretty sweet. After running Crysis for an hour it idles back down to 43 with the fan on auto, and down to 39 with the fan at 100.

Under load the card peaks at 60, both at the default speed of 576MHz, and at my overclocked speed of 710Mhz, which is playing Crysis Warhead using all enthusiast settings with the exception of shadows at gamer, 8xAF, and 2xAA @ 1600x1200. This was with the fan at 100%, and three case fans; 2 120's and an 80mm. I was getting 20-35+ fps with those settings. When running the fan on auto it peaks at 74.

The shader seems to be holding my core back, as I get artifacts at 1435, so I run at 1425 which limits my core clock to 710. It will run fine at 715/1430, but I don't want to push it too hard. My memory artifacts at 2550, so I run it at 2500. That's a final overclock of 710/1425/2500.

WOW! I just got my Qty. 2 EVGA 280 GTX FTW Edition Graphics cards for my new rig. Man, the one 280 GTX played UT3 like it owned it. I mean it UT3 was a rag doll then it got tossed around like one with a single 280 GTX I can't wait to see how SLI turns out. Does anyone know when the 55nm based 280 GTX will come out?

Yeah, I'm gonna. Funny thing is though, I'm not sure if the company (Albatron) makes graphics cards anymore.

Well, I just got myself an XFX GTX260. Played Crysis for few mins, Crysis gave 14-16fps @1920x1080 no AA/AF in DX9 mode. Seems like neither Crysis or Warhead are detecting 1920x1200 resolution and only show 1920x1080 as the max option. I wonder if thats a driver issue? currently using 177.26 - hopefully updating em will make the issue go away.

Time to finally start Mass Effect/Assassin's Creed.

Just installed my new GTX280 three hours ago and its is just what I expected! It's all around 33% to 66% better than my 8800GTX was. Cost me half as much as the 8800GTX two years ago. And the GXT280 has none of the problems that the 9800GX2 I tried tried out for seven days had. w00t!

After two years of total enjoyment with an 8800GTX; I've upgraded finally and I LUV my new GTX280!
