To be honest, i had an incline it was going to be this month as all rumors and what-not gave that impression.

I must say though, Nvidia did'nt have this kept under wraps, damn and i just bought a GTX470 and a Core i7 and A new board and new ram and now i am broke and the moths have moved back in my wallet.

Guess next year i will most definetly be upgrading.


EDIT:: I was even going to be getting a second GTX470 but that idea just went out the window!!!

'twas ever thus..

seems the only way to get ahead these days is to go sli - when will it all end?
gone are the days when we could safely settle on, say a 6600GT and know we'd be ahead for a good while
games designers are making it harder to stay up with the situation as well, DX10, DX10.1, DX11.. - DX21.8..(??)

- where will it all end, I asks ya..?

we see fewer releases for the PC, but they come with ever greater complexity
there's a good few games out there from years past, just dying for a make-over
using the revitalized graphics that come with these highly advanced cards..

if only the race would slow down long enough for the majority of people to catch up..

The noise?, yes that's definitely very noticeable, but as a headphone user, that's a non-issue for me.
Yea, that's all that's needed is a fan profile setting up. The default fan settings favour noise over heat, hence why it takes so long for the fan to speed up. Do it yourself and you have reasonable temperatures.

windows 7 home premium 64, and Windows 10 64 bit

I do not see the big difference between the two. The best part of this is now I can get a second 480 cheaper and blow the 580 away! At least for a few months while this will be be the best pair out!

All I can say is WOW $622.15 for me with shipping and Tax
Even though I've never used ATI the 6870 looks really good compared to spending that much money on a GFX card.

I know how you feel fabe I can't possibly spend that much unless i was doing sli or crossfire x2-6870's would cost as much as the gtx580 579.00 is pretty high even after i just spent 285.00 on my hd6870
