Great, great news, now GTX 280 has a more logical price. Sorry for all early adopters over here, but hey, now you can buy a second card cheaper

I'm pretty sure anyone who has had them for a few weeks already wasn't concerned about the money.

I still can't afford that. However, the GTX 280 is now a far better deal than it was.

The only problem is the amount of noise that card produce !!

.65nm is also obselete

Have you tested one to claim that? probably not so don't post this type of stuff unless you know what you are talking about. If you look around you will see that all the new ATI and Nvidia cards are running about the same temperatures at the same noise levels.

If I run my GTX260 with auto fanspeed I can't hear it over the CPU cooler fan (OCZ Vendetta).

You wouldn't know the difference between a .55nm and a .65nm die if you didn't read about it on the internet. The die size and technology matters more to the manufacturer to reduce costs than to the customer using the product.

And I'm not an Nvidia fanboy...

^^^^ +1
Glad someone spoke up, you beat me to it
You want heat and noise, head over here to my house, my 4870 will give you all you can handle
In fact after 2 days, I'll be happy when my step-up arrives to see if the new nv cards are this bad.

I got my GTX 260 in 2 days ago. Its as quiet as the 8800GT i'm replacing, after playing for 2 hours constant in AoC.

"as quiet as my 8800GT" = quieter than my already quiet case fan.

After experiencing my GTX 260, I'm very comfortable stating that if yours is loud, .... its broke.
