If it's any consolation, I confuse my own board all the time too, lol - There is just something about this combo of letters that refuse to sink in

A single 480 won't, but a 480 SLI definitely would

Well in some area's the 480 does. and many it does not. But as highly overclocked as they go. It gets pretty close in all area's and smokes it at others. I've got it past 900 Mhz so far, but been busy lately and haven't tested my limits now I'm on water.

And yes there was still bubbles in the reservior. Not in the loop though. Those are always there the first 24-36 hours of a loop. they are ALL gone now and it's as clear as, well..... Distilled Water

yes it should be a very good update.

I'm exited for this next week because the Nvidia Drivers that will officially start the Fermi performance increases will be here. And the Google I/O is also starting and the latest Android Froyo build is coming very shortly. Especially to lucky people like me owning the Nexus One, cuz Google gives us these updates asap. and people with Droid's and Incredible's have to wait for HTC and Motorola to add the update and roll em out.

This next week will be exiting for Nvidia and for Google. I'm looking forward to both!

EVGA is getting ready to release backplates for non watercooled Fermis.

Just returned from the Thai Embassy in LA, CA. Sorry to have missed some things here.

The main reason I got the 480 is for the 384 bit interface over the 256. I use my system as 90% mostly video application. I have been reading up and Nvidia appears to have the edge for video while gamers seem to prefer the ATI. This may not be the norm for everyone. Having both I must say the Nvidia does have a sharper vision for Blue Ray Movies. Best of all there is no lag time when loading the movies as there is with regular BD players. I have a Sony model 360 that does not play VCD and loads slow. VCD is Video Compact Disk for those that do not know. The GTV 480 does play everything much better then the ATI 3870x2 cross fired that I had. But that is just me.

flashy graphics doesn't make a game.

thus most gamers are not gamers.

Leaked 32 bit 256 driver benchmark:
The first review driver NVIDIA 256.76 (32bit) - AMTECH
Looks like DX11 optimizations are starting to kick in.

Exactly the same thing I tell people who think graphics make a game.

Some good increases there. Especially that Dirt2 benchmark.
