    Late 2010 it came out, so not quite 2yrs old.:)

    Silly you may say, but I know SLI works well on the GTX580, and I don't want to take the risk with a couple of HD7970 with the drivers right now, as I will be gaming at 2560x1600, and not my usual 6030x1080.

    I will be sitting tight for a week or 2, to see if the drivers do get better for CF, before I make my purchase of a couple of 3GB Evga classified GTX 580 to tie me over till April when the GTX 780 comes to play.:)

    Nvidia are supposedly releasing the lower end cards first then later the high end part.
    So it could be Q3 before we see a GTX 780.


    I hope it's not as late as all that though. :(

    I thought this thread was going to be interesting then I see a Nvidia Marketing slide posted as evidence.

    FAIL!

    Going back to BF3 now.

    But you already have a 580. Just seems like a waste of money IMO. I've had mine since launch which yea you're right was November 2010. Wouldnt invest in them now though :)

    Peeps also said I was mad to drop £800 on a 990X only to upgrade 8 months later to a 3960X...:)

    We've kinda accepted that you're Batsh!t insane, Simon. We just look at what you're doing, then do it in three years when it doesn't cost a few thousand pounds.

    Sometimes you remind me of Peter Lorre's character in Fritz Lang's "M": "Ich will nicht. Ich MUSS!" :p

    Hate to say it, but you pretty much are.. Lol. I'm extremely bad for buying trinkets I have no real need for, but even I managed to resist buying an £800CPU for a 3 year old socket.
