Went and got a GTX 480 from CompUSA.

EDIT: Cost justified! Fallout 3 is totally playable now!

And it wasn't with your dual GTX 260?

I remember, when I had one GTX260 and a Q6600- that rig burned through every game I threw at it.

Nope, Recent drivers broke the game on older cards I think since performance is 100% different. With my SLi Rig it would stutter randomly or whenever I quickly look around.

Wow- that sucks.

Just fired it up and with everything maxed my SLi'd 8800GTXs are doing great. Haven't gotten outside the vault yet, though. That's the real test.

FO3 is like a locked 60fps with it, which is nice.

Im really impressed with the card. Performance is up all around, I thought it would have been the same or slightly slower going by benchmarks but some games have shown a significant increase (Crysis, Cryostatis, World in Conflict) with higher settings.

He already bought it. Besides, either you need a card or you don't, waiting for the next card is dumb as there will always be another card coming out down the road.

+1,000,000

And the perfect example of this was this...I bought my HD5870 in OCT 09. Sold it in April 10 for same money I paid for it and switched to GTX 480 for $100 more. Otherwise I would've been sitting on my hands for 6 months with a slower, Non DX11 GTX 280. I'm so glad I went to the HD5870 and didnt wait for the delays of Fermi - I used it for 6 months and then sold it for what I paid for it (best holding value GPU I've ever owned)... and that is why you don't keep waiting for the next big thing....
