    Default EVGA Gtx 580 superclocked 1536GDDR5

    Never thought id hear myself say this but thought after a good months overtime, and selling both my SLI GTX460's for a reasonable price thought id treat myself to a super dooper xmas pressie as had a real tight year..

    Will let people know what i think of it incase other people are seriously thinking of spending some heavy cash on this?

    - if you want benchmarks for ATI 68xx comparissons jus ask.

    (excited) lol!

    hopefully if the misses dont get to it before me i can have it before xmas

    Should be an awesome card. Will play Metro at max settings at 1920x1200! Used to need dual GTX480's to do that. I'm jealous.

    Just proves my theory. No matter how long you wait, no matter how thoroughly you shop and now matter when you buy, the instant you click "checkout" something newer better and cheaper will immediately come out.

    Too true, could be i might of had a 1GB GTX 460 in my rig rather than my 5850 if i had waited a bit longer, as they are good value for money, but am i happy ? oh yes . And perhaps in a few weeks, people with GTX 580's might be saying they wish the had waited for the AMD 6970, or be kissing the keister of their 580's if the 6970 flops on the other hand.

    hehe told the misses it was £200 ... 8-)

    technically it was. sold my old server i ran from home and 2x GTX 460's for £280
    so covered vat+postage+ £200 lol

    Card idles in my 902 antec case at around 45 deg average.. under load max 75 deg. (playing metro 2033 maxxed)

    for an idea on performance (all 8x Antialiasing 16x Antisotropic) - 1920x1080

    [card out the box, not overclocked with EVGA precision]

    WOW @ ultra settings - constant >100fps
    Metro 2033 Direct X 11 very high (max) - 40-60fps
    Modern Warfare 2 - constant >100fps
    Dragon age - constant >100fps
    Medal Of Honour - constant >100fps

    so yeah you get the gist.. if its a directx 11 game or you actually have a 2048x true res monitor.. you're looking at 100fps

    (ran on a i7 950 with 6gb trichannel ram)

    Looks like a monster, you'll have to join us & show us your [URL="http://www.pcgamer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4560"]Heaven Benchmark[/URL] for the GTX 580

    I'm sure your Mrs will get an extra special Christmas present as a secret reward
