Well I cancelled my order.. Then realized I should've just kept it and flipped it... talked to a CS rep and they couldn't re-instate it.

Congrats to all who got one

Also, since I do some YT work for fun, Capturing games will be easier as well. Less frame drop and more stable avg. frames per second! Cannot wait!!

'tis a shame I still only have a 1680x1050 monitor..

On to look at Open box deals for those!!! lol...
You went from that, to this:

You were better off with the 6950. VRAM is important, but not when the core can't keep up, not saying the GF104 cores can't in BF3. The 6950 core is just straight up faster than the 460s. It would of been smarter to buy it, keep it sealed in the box while you investigate what you really want, and flip it for profit or keep it. There was no reason to be so indecisive. You even had buyers remorse before the product shipped. There is a return policy you can use to your advantage.

On top of that, the 460 SLI would require two 2GB cards, and you stated that you could barely afford a 6950 which was $10 more than the 460. You would of had to buy both at once, or find a similar deal down the road. Everything will always be cheaper down the road, including 6950s.

From what I saw, some guy was bragging on the Slickdeals thread that he bought the entire stock so he could flip them all.

Idiots need to stop posting OCN deals on slickdeals. Though OCN lurkers are just as bad too (remembering i3 540 incident...)

I know! ... I am very indecisive at times...

I took money from Savings to buy 2x 2GB Zotac's.. I've been wanting 580 performance for awhile now. And I'm hoping this will work to satisfaction.. Thing is, it'll look super awesome in the case, and I'll get better performance, for ~$70 more..

Though I could've just flipped the 6950.. oh well, can't change the past. I think I will be pleased with the pair of 460s
