Windows 7: Just got my GTX 480

Went thru first time for me. Used in Firefox, put a tick in that little checkbox, clicked process, filled in card info, and that was it.

Weird. If you had access to a proxy IP, you could try that. Might not like yours maybe.

I sent an email off to them to see what may be wrong. Hopefully I'll here something back soon.

Problem solved, and bracket ordered. After double checking the serial number, I noticed it was missing a number causing it to not recognize the registered card.

Whoops. I hate it when I do stuff like that!

LOL, easy enough mistake. At least you figured out why and got it.

Now they just need to stock them on the European EVGA site.

As I'm only running a single monitor atm, it'd be nice if the new bracket could drop idle temps down to 40C...

I found a neat trick to lower dual monitor temps, when not using system for GPU entensive tasks.
Up top "unlock Min" and turn your settings down to default single monitor performance (0) levels.
At the bottom click settings shortcut, this will place an icon, that you can click to kick it into low temp mode.
I have been running this on duals for the past five days and have not yet seen any flicker or other artifacts.
