It's funny you mention this because I ordered a package from a member here and they sent it out via parcel post. USPS lost it and I've been waiting since mid-September for it to arrive. =/

some usps offices do have a few workers come in on Sunday to expedite mail and deliver parcels. I've had to do it a few times when I was a carrier, as far as your box being soaking wet that's totally inexcusable we have special cover we're suppose to use to protect the mail at all times in bad weather I would have called the post master about that. Just me though...

Is there more snow in the forecast for your area? Maybe they're delivering mail as early as possible if more snow may be on the way

USPS sucks compared to UPS or FedEx. If I miss their package, I have to wait until the next day to schedule the delivery for the day after that. If I miss it, I don't get it until two days later. Miss Monday and get Wednesday. UPS and FedEx will try three days in a row and you don't have to call them or anything. UPS and FedEx even come upstairs for me. USPS, never. I wish Amazon would stop using them for free shipping...

One time, I told the USPS man I was coming down but I wasn't able to because of the elevators. I set it for another day. Bad night and I fell asleep late and missed it in the morning. Pink notice did not yet say "Final Notice." Called again, and got a voicemail from my local post office's manager telling me to come pick it up because he thought I was playing games with his men. They are in a dangerous area but I had to go so I've hated them ever since. I truly hope they disappear.

Also, their online tracking sucks balls compared to UPS or FedEx.

What games should I get?

What are the best Nvidia drivers for the 580?
Here is some of my gaming advice.

Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, and Dues Ex:Human Revelution - three games I've enjoyed trememdously as of late.

I've always considered Crysis as a game with a refreshing feel to first person shooters. The campaigns are awesome. Crysis 2 raised the bar on graphics when it first released and the game everyone tried to get their rig to play/compare to being very graphic demanding.

Battlefield 3 campaign is great. Their online multiplayer raised the bar so high, even my addicted kids to Call of Duty are asking for it for Christmas on their PS3 console.

Though people thought it would be demanding as hell, I'm playing BF3 on Ultra 4xMSAA maxed settings and my card is pushing the 60FPS avg.

The mass VRAM & GPU performance required to be playable hysteria was all speculative hype. On the plus side, it was great for Nvidia and AMD sales.

A third game I've enjoyed more of a role-playing first person shooter has been Duex Ex:Human Evolution. Not as graphical intensive however. I've got that fully maxed and it's not even taking a toll on my card. I'm eating those graphics up scaled all the way with the slider up on everything.

As for which driver you should be using....the latest that's not beta IMO. I hate using beta drivers for anything. I've always upgraded to the latest final release drivers since getting this card and haven't had any issues. The current driver is 285.62.

Good luck with your new card, I'm positive your going to love it.

USPS is losing money at a rapid pace and has asked Congress for permission to begin closing on Saturdays as well. Since all USPS workers are Union workers and are closed on Sundays, I don't see how this is possible This would clearly be an overtime opportunity, so it would have to be scheduled and not just some random act of goodness.
Edit: Btw, Obama agreed that they may begin closing on Saturdays to cut costs.
