I had the Evga 8800gtx since november 2006, was waiting for the GTX280 but noise more than price is an issue for me. So I bought the Sapphire HD 4870 and it's crushing my 8800GTX in every benchmarks and it's also quiet.

The GTX 280 need a die shrink asap !

Just voted "Wait for the new ATi offering "

Actually it's not true, I just ordered the HD 4780 but there is not such option in the Poll either you buy the NVIDIA card or just wait

Anybody likes to buy my BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX OC 768MB PCIe, never OC by me and only 10 months old with lifetime BFG Waranty?
