Absolutely upgrading to 2x EVGA GTX480's in SLI. Cannot wait for these puppies to land down here. I'm really hoping they will be here before next Friday, as I have an all weekend Lan to show these Beasts Off.

Even if there was something worth upgrading my 5870 to I promised myself I wouldn't upgrade my GPU this year So that's a no from me.

This is very insightful, and I wish certain people on this site saw it this way. I hate it when people call ANYONE on this site an ATI fanboy simply because they chose Cypress or Hemlock over Fermi.

I've been an Nvidia user since I got into high performance computing with the Geforce 4 Ti 4200. Hell, I even owned a crappy FX 5900 because I thought it was the best thing under the sun. This time, Nvidia dropped the ball and was unable to release a product that was competitive at the same time as ATI. It took them 6 months to get their process and architecture sorted out, and even now, it's still crippled by less than promised performance and higher energy and heat output. ATI, on the other hand, delivered everything they promised, and they delivered it on time. They even threw in a little mint in the form of Eyefinity to sweeten the deal.

I am anything but a fanboy. Am I passionate about the 5870 I have in my computer right now? Hell yes I am! It's a great product. Am I a fanboy? No, and I never will be. I give my hard earned money to the company that has the best product at the best price. To me, ATI has that product currently. Hopefully, Nvidia will catch up within the next 6 months and recapture the market share that they've lost.

Those of you that think we're ATI fanboys are so blinded by the fact that we don't own an Nvidia card that you're willing to attack us openly. If you truly feel this way, please seek help. As much fire as you have for your company, it's not worth it to risk your reputation based on the fact that you don't like something about ATI.

No. Price is too high. I'll wait for prices to come down, and for refresh of both ATI and Nvidia

Besides, with the new GPU I would have to to do an overall system upgrade, and that is not an option at this time

I'll wait a while to get proper information from the users.
After evaluation I will go for 5xxx or 480.

No, the noise and heat is to much for me. The only card i find interesting on the market right now is 5870 Vapor-X.

Bingo. I was planning on waiting for a GTX 470, but they are hard to get a hold of and for $50 more I could get a 5870 so I went that route. I just want the best bang for the buck, I don't care if my card is red or green. I have had nvidia cards for the past 6 years now (6800GT, 7800GTX, 8800GT, 9800GT) and I am sure I will go back to their cards when the priceerformance is right

Possibly, The GTX 470 is intriguing. When overclocked it gets close and sometimes surpasses the 5870 in performance, and while I'm used to the ATI drivers now, I will say I do prefer Nvidia's.

On the other hand, the 5850 over clocks like crazy and would easily out pace the stock 470 for $50 less.

So we shall see. I probably won't buy either until I get a bonus in June (unless I get some extra dough in between) so it may be a different picture then.

I just look for the GTX 480 to be around $600 or more just like the HD5970 which is priced around $700 and more. because of the low quanities and it will more then likely be the middle of may or latter before any decent amount of cards actually come out ,unless nvidia is loseing money on them and decide not make to many high end cards.and go with the middle of the road cards.Some people might call it a flop but I don't think it is a flop because it is faster then a HD 5870 in most all cases.but you can't deny it does draw the power and it does run pretty warm and it does'nt have a cheap cooler on it.I just can't see myself getting one unless they come down in price ,which I don't see that happened.I was so hopeing it would be 30% to 40% faster then a HD5870 and really I was hopeing it would be faster then a HD5970.Just because a lot of nvidia people went with ATI this time around ,I hope we are not being consider a ATI fanboy.I have always went with what I thought was the better deal.I just don't think the GTX 480 is the better deal this go around.The GTX 480 is just to hot which is going to make it have a loud fan to try to keep it cool.I really think for the money the HD 5850 is the best deal at least running two of them in cross-fire.Even the HD5770 is a great card excpecially running it in sli or TRI SLI.I still have never had any problem with studdering with nvidia or ATI.I still would Like to have just one card with one GPU that is as fast as a HD 5970 running at 850/1200.But This time around I wanted to go with the quite Computer.I have a HAF 932 and I had took out the 230mm fan and put 4 120mm fans on the side putting out over 400CFM so I could keep my three GTX 280's cool. I took them out and put back in the 230mm fan and cut the noise in half.Plus the Gigabytes HD5870's I went with are quite and never go above 50c.I wish nvidia could shrink there die and make ther GTX 480 run cooler and draw less power.I wish they could make a card with 4 GPU and each have 750million transistors working as one GPU and have 2 gigs of memory all working together.I would even like to see when SLI or TRI SLI and cross-fire and Tri-fire be able to use all of there memory instead of just loseing the extra memory.Look like they could make them where they could be able to use all there memory as just one big card.

And FWIW with an overclocked 5830 nipping at the 5850's heels for $50 or more less, THAT makes the playing field look quite interesting at this time as well.

Dude tell me about it. Ati's lineup is making it next to impossible for me to make a decision.

If the 5830 falls to $199 it would make for a crazy powerful xfire setup on the cheap.
