Heh.

It's probably gonna' be a year easy before I'm able to have another top of the line rig. Gonna' be livin' in a trailer for a season so I have to keep power consumption and heat generation in mind.

Who knows, maybe once I've moved out of the trailer I'll have enough money to just completely splurge and get an awesome water-cooled setup.

One can dream.

Thinking about doing the same.

I did that myself, and it was worth the upgrade. Games feel smoother running at 1920x1200 with the 480 than the 470. If you're running at 1680 or less, it's probably not going to make a difference.

I've never bought the top card released - they're usually more $$ than I'm willing to spend and I only game at 1680 at the moment. Like saturnotaku said above, I'm not sure this will really benefit me for now, but I'm thinking of going with a 24" monitor or larger for my birthday.

Or I might just buy the boat I've been wanting.

I probably can't return the card, so I will probably sell it here...
