GTX 480 Thread

Post by Ambush on Thu Apr 15, 2010 11:32 am

So, Roman is the first one to get one of these babies. I'm kind of bummed I can't run my TRI SLI without my computer manifesting. Anyway, I was thinking if anything graphic intense comes out like Crysis 2 (haha) or something else that will utilize it I'll upgrade to 2 x GTX 480's. I'm very very content with my cards and their current performance I must say. And I know Nvidia will come out with a more beefier card I'm sure. However, usually when they do the older card performs better IMO. Scaling is better and less heat.

Ok, well the new tech bug bit me. Here is what I'm doing: I've posted my listing on Craigs List as well as under the For Sale section of the forum that will send you to a link or you could just talk to me.

I'm only going to buy these cards if I can sell at least 2 of my GTX 280's. I'm trying to sell all 3. My asking price is not that steep, but not rock bottom either. Someone will get a deal and I won't be getting screwed.

Order canceled. My one card is fine for now. They need to hurry up and stock these cards already.

Ok, so someone at my work wants to buy my GTX 280. Well, I don't want SLI anymore it's just too much in terms of "stuff" and heat. I need a replacement though right? It's on the way.
