    Looks like I've finally found a worthy upgrade to my 8800GT. Seems a great balance of performance and price.

    is it me, or the fan blades are higher than the black cover? isn't that a health & safety hazard?

    great performance. nvidia has done it again :D 500 series is a win!

    Like i said in the other thread, looks like there's still no reason to retire the 275. Well, other than dx11. Sigh, come on GPU market!

    Must... have....

    One question though, what part of Just Cause 2 is DX11? From what i've read DX10 is optimal for this game.

    It and the rest of this gen are gonna look sooooooo 1999 later this year when the 28nm cards come out. They're what I'm saving my pennies for.

    it's a bit pricey compared to the 460?

    3 out of 3 Powercolor 6950s I've tested have unlocked. Tough call between the two, I'd go with the AMD/ATi card but I'm that way inclined. How is SLi scaling on GTX560Ti? I haven't had a sniff of one just yet.

    Yeah, not quite as aggressively priced. But it is competitively priced when compared to its peers (the 6950)

    yep, 28nm is rumoured be ready one year after 500 came out (late 2011, gtx580 came out in November). but the rumour is the first 28nm nvidia GPU will be GF119. so you have quite a large amount of time to save up.

    don't expect next high end GPU to come out until 2012.

    i may replace my 280 with one of these just for the sake of thermals, been waiting for a decent card with reasonable temps/decent cooler for ages now
