It's going to look pretty thats for sure, and when the DX11 games come out even better. The jump from the 8800GT to the GTX280 was a night and day difference with Crysis. I could probably see a difference with the 480 but not as dramatic as the last jump. A screen shot at 16XAA compared to 2XAA would be interesting I think.

Not that it matters much but what kind of scores do you see with Vantage?

I haven't reinstalled Vantage, but I will..

and a SS of Crysis at 2xAA and then full. I'll try that once I install it.

So you've had the card for a couple of days...

What gems or duds about the card do you have now?

You gonna get another one for SLI?

I saw you were going to do some benchmarks. Did you get a chance to run GTA IV? The latest patch(two days ago) pretty much raped my performance. Game is almost un-playable now with a lot of stuttering, texture flickering and pop-in. Horrible. Was fine before the patch.

Are you kidding? Mine got better. No more frame lag. Runs very smooth. But it freaked out and said my key was invalid.

well. Regarding GTA IV. I just read that there is an update for it on STEAM. I actually use steam for most of my games. and GTA IV as fun as it was. I actually stopped playing because for PC it was a mess. Windows live starting, and the social club and all that crap on my PC. and I couldn't get it all to stop. it was just irritating.

If I can add it to steam and have ALLLL that go away. I'll be doing that instead and just start over or copy over my saves. so I might be a day or 2 on the GTA benchmarks. but more other benchies are coming 2nite.

oh and Jerm.. Thanks. hopefully you guys ship my block soon. I got the first email n thats all. but it's only been 2 days. I'm sure it will ship monday or so.

as far as SLI. I do have the eVGA 480 pre-ordered from amazon. according to a few sources of mine the GTX 400 and mainly 480 shortage that is going on right now will NOT last, and nvidia has just finished shipping tons of them to everyone. Next week starting April 19th (Monday) Newegg is supposed to get many brands in stock, as well as TD on the 20th, and same thing goes for a few other stores. so i'm HOPING that on monday my eVGA ships from amazon. if so I'll be sure to run a few benchmarks and have some fun. but in the end I'll sell the gigabyte n keep only one.

Wish I was kidding. There are tons of people with issues now. Check out GTAForums.com -> PC Performance Tips

Some think its an nvidia issue but there were a couple ATI reports of issues. But yeah I lost a good 10-20 FPS regardless of shadow settings. I ran high before just fine. The big issue i'm having now though is texture flickering and some stuttering here and there. Also before the game would hit lowest FPS in the low 30's. Now i've hit the low 20's to a little under 20 before! I have the steam version so I can't revert to the old patch. I tried earlier but as soon as it installed it started the update even though I had auto-updates off. Thankfully I already beat IV and don't play it as much anymore but I was looking forward to picking up the expansions but I won't be if this is how the performance will be.

I might try some older drivers again because before I used 196.21 which worked great. Recently though I picked up 197.45 which gave me a noticeable boost in a few of my games especially Just Cause 2. Since I play that a lot lately i'm kinda reluctant to go back to the older drivers.

Ok sorry for jacking the thread! Look forward to some bench results.

get MSI Afterburner.. the latest beta5 comes out tomorrow with GTX 470 voltage tweaking for all cards... and also if you wont be adjusting voltage at least turn up fan. at 65% i can't hear the fan at all in my system and I idle at 44c.. then I turn it up a little higher for gaming.
