Yup. This plus disabled cores makes me weary on sticking with NVIDIA. The ATI 5970 and future models is looking much better. I have a 3-way SLI/CrossfireX capable board (EVGA X68 A1), but I have a second video card to run two other monitors and don't feel like cramming a third in there since it would prevent me from running my sound card. So I'm stuck with the best solo card, which is the GTX 295 or 5970 now. I doubt the GTX 480 would have enough of a performance gain to justify an upgrade for $500. My 295 might even come closer to its performance.
