We're actively researching this. Anything that will make the outcome more accurate is fine in my books.

Back to the topic at hand.... ;)
Hey Sky, Would you be aware of some kind of price drop from ATI ? Or do you expect their prices to lower a bit ? (don't know if that's the kind of thing you could be aware of anyway -.-)

Hey sell your old parts and it will cover a lot of the price. If you wait 5-6 months they will be a lot less value. I don't see the GTX 470 and 480 dropping in price any time soon. I think they will increase in price if ATI doesn't lower prices because availability will be low.

well the thing is that ati/amd didnt react. and when you see them not reacting, that means theyre either comfortable or stupid, the latter not being the case.

evga 275? hmmm...try 225-250? some dude was selling his 280's i think around 170-185 but thats one guy in a million lol.

Thanks, I thought around 200 ish, so the 225 hits the mark I think for me. Now to decide 470 or 480 :p

For gaming or folding? For gaming single card > two cards IMO.
For gaming, I need to get a new folding rig going to be honest.. thanks for reminding me hahaha

wow, this thread got long quick - as expected.
I preordered a 480 SC from ncix.. and as soon as proper drivers, and the folding interface updates, i'll be posting what PPD numbers I get off of it for sure.
I'm kind of disappointed that there isn't a separate overclocking setup for just the shaders (they incorporated it in the core clock)

I'm definitely putting it under water as soon as something becomes available, and I don't care where from (hint hint dazmode)
