I re-installed Bioshock last night myself. Haven't played for some time. It's running pretty well!

Did mine early Tuesday morning so a couple of days.

They said it could take up to a week. I'd imagine they got slammed with orders with these deals. The core 192 and it looks like the gtx 280 that was on sale are both sold out. So they're probably slammed.

One thing I don't understand is the step up program. I finally can step up with the warranty completion updated so I cna see the prices. The prices of the trade up though are insane. Might as well just by a new one and keep the old one. It looks like release prices lol.

Thumbs up Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread

LOVING IT! Just picked up a a GTX260-216 SC and now I'm running Crysis at VERY HIGH, 8x ansio, 4x FSAA(SS) and it's smooooooooth (1280x800). In fact I am running all my games maxed out now. And with 8x ansio and 4x FSAA(SS). It's amazing! Some at LCD native (1680x1050) and some at 1280x800.

I can't believe the upgrade this card is over my aging 8800GT!!!


Currently playing:

Crysis + (warhead)
Fallout 3
Far Cry 2
Team Fortress 2
WoW
UT3
Bioshock
Race'07
GRID

Cause it really cleans up the image. At native I can't run any AA and it's still buzzy.
