Not quite EVGA, but oh well.....
Ill be unloading some 280s cheap
Congrats. Should be fun. Damn that sucks paying tax at newegg though and at 10%!
Yea but I get it in one day at least
Ouch on the sales tax though.
*edit - I see the sales tax has been covered already.
Watch me throw it against a wall when the 512SP version that uses 30w less comes out in a month. I will take pictures.
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.
EVGA 480 is available, let's see how long it lasts...
EDIT: Gone before I could put it in my cart
I am curious to see if you'll notice a reduction in input lag compared to using the dual 280 GTXs?
Awesome toy. So, you going to take them up on a recommendation of a Rosewill PSU to power the bad boy with?
PNY is a brand new company but they are selling items(there prices are high)as if there products have been around for a long time, I'm not suggesting there good or bad Simply my observation.
Can't wait to see reviews for these cards on the egg. Should be entertaining.
um PNY is not a brand new company. in fact I have PNY card from 2003.
PNY Electronics, Inc. originated out of Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1985 as a company that bought and sold memory chips. To emphasize its expansion into manufacturing new forms of memory and complementary products, the company changed its name in 1997 to PNY Technologies®, Inc. The company continues to evolve by delivering a full spectrum of high-quality products to elevate the overall computing experience.
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.
470 is available
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!
Far from it.
yeah I was just editing my comment to reflect their company info.
I managed to snag the evga gtx480 and now my order has been charged. I'm pretty pumped about it and also added overnight shipping. I want my fermi dammit.
PNY got Fermi chips but XFX did not?
What the * has this world come to!
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.
Haha, the entire 400 series is completely sold out. Damn piranhas.
Zipzoomfly has them....Price gouging em tho
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.
