I think my under-volted GTX260 is going to be just fine until they release a "GTX460" shrink.

TDU was much more demanding than the Xbox version though and from what I am hearing, you can really dial up the graphics options on the PC version of the game

I might have to grab a good wheel for when the game comes out I think.

Awesome setup hell_of_doom227!

Wait, does this mean we still have to read your complaints in the Other Desktop Graphics Cards sub-section or have you come to your senses?

Heavily invested in DX11 not turning out anything attractive this year then.

fermi is a huge leap forward. In the next revision the drivers and the manufacturing process will push a lot more performance. This tech has legs.
