I think you would be very pleasantly surprised with a 480 Doc. I played a bit more AVP and Metro this morning and Wow, just beautiful.

They did. Those initial reviews, for what ever reason, were very misleading.

For sure - I usually just have to wait for the real reviews (actual end users) as I consider it a rather long term purchase.

Awesome card though, very happy with it.

I couldn't be happier with them

I ordered a EVGA 470 GTX today:



If this is not good enough, I will probably sell this and get a 480.

Same card I got - it is sweet, but I think I may actually step up to the 480...

Now that I have my feet wet with a 470, I've ordered a 480. I will have it here in a few days.
