The first GTX 480 is coming in tomorrow... Bad thing is that my RMA replacement for the 760 Classified showed up with two bent pins in the CPU socket yesterday. *** kind of 'recertification' program do you run that you don't notice two bent pins? The first board I got from Sidewinder (mostly because it was the only one I could find in stock, and there was a bundle deal with the EK Classified chipset waterblock). The onboard audio wouldn't work and it wouldn't POST without the reset button being pushed manually on the board. EVGA's policy is to replace a faulty board with a recertified part, and this is the second time (out of two) that I've gotten a bad replacement board from them. Pissed? Yeah, bit of an understatement. They're going to pay the shipping this time both ways (which is what I made them do last time too), but still not real thrilled about it. I paid $400 for this board over a month ago, and still don't have one that works. So now I'm gonna have a new GTX 480 to put on my old 780i board...great.
The other pre-ordered GTX 480 I don't have a date on for shipment. Ordered it from Amazon, so it might be a week or so before it ships I guess. I ordered it about a week after the one from EVGA. Stupid EVGA not letting us pre-order more than one of the series from them...
I'm gonna be selling two complete systems after this one gets built, both based on 780i boards, one EVGA, one XFX. I've got 3 EVGA GTX 260s, 2 XFX 8800GTS 512s, and a BFG 9800GX2, but I'm keeping one of the 260s for a PhysX card. At least that's the plan so far. Also have a Q6700, a Q9550, and 16GB of DDR2-800 RAM to get rid of too. It'll all be in the for sale section when I get ready. I'll be glad to get rid of all it, I have all the original boxes for everything and it takes up a ton of room storing them.
