I'm just wondering if I went up to a 1920 monitor with AA enabled and dropped from say 100+ to 70 fps if that would also cure it since my GPU wouldn't be spitting out twice as many fps as my refresh rate is at.
Screen tearing doesn't bother you with Vsync off? I can't stand it so I run with it on in every game, except for BFBC2, which for some reason doesn't seem to have tearing at all...or at least I don't notice it.

About $30 dollars. Every 480 on the planet can run at SC speeds as it's only 26mhz, which is nothing. I've also not seen any proof that the SC cards are specially binned or will overclock higher than any standard card either. Basically they are higher profit margin cards so Evga can make a bit more money.

It didnt with any previous card but it does with the GTX 480, alot too. I think its just because the GTX 480 is so fast its producing alot more fps than my 60hz 1680x1050 can display thus causing it to seem choppy. Im thinking about a 120hz monitor now.

Mine is ordered
In case anyone needs it I got this card from Tiger Direct:
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) SuperClocked Video Card - 1536MB GDDR5

It was 529.99 then there is a coupon code (WSD2596) I got from HardOCP for $50 making it 479.99 shipped. Cheaper than buying a regular version then OCing manually .

Time to remove the "bigboy" fan from my case. The 480 won't fit in there with it in place, those tubes will most likely hit the fan blades.

Just bought myself a EVGA Geforce 465 today to upgrade my 9800 GTX+ They sure had a good run now one goes off to my media center the other will go to ebay.

I am planing on picking up another 2 465's later on this summer or do a step-up to the 470.
