Wow actually being sold at suggested retail price. I would have thought newegg would price gouge on these. Then again it's probably too early for that.

Nice.

I am curious to see if you'll notice a reduction in input lag compared to using the dual 280 GTXs?

um PNY is not a brand new company. in fact I have PNY card from 2003.

CB, a single GTX280 is fast enough in just about everything that any input lag is likely imperceptible. It will be less with the 480, but I doubt mere mortals will notice.

It's mostly an issue on trying to multi-GPU feeble, low end hardware which manages single digit frame rates per card. Competitive gamers can just crank down resolution and details until any game runs at 120+ fps.

EVGA and PNY cards sold out in like 5 minutes. I wonder if they only had like 5 cards each? LOL.

You know it! When making an unnecessary $550 purchase for electronic gaming components, I will only trust the best with my hardware!

Xfx is not doing fermi and there was an article about it last month. Bfgtech on the other hand is but is late to the party.

PNY is fine. I have an assortment of PNY 8800GTS, 8800GTX and 8600GT cards that are still running fine to this day.

It might have something to do with the fact that there are no Pny Radeon 5xxx parts. XFX Radeons on the other hand...

I'd like to know why you guys jumped on this? Wanted the fast single-gpu possible? Bad experience with ATI? CUDA ? PHYSX? 3DVision?

Sidenote: I'd get an evga-card over a pny-card anyday, even the cards will be identical.

470s @ZZF for $410+. That's good for a laugh.
