EVGA GTX480s are £180 on Scan at the minute... I'm going to wait for Kepler (hopefully a 4GB card) but I'm so, so tempted to get a pair (or even three, but that'd mean a new PSU as well) of 480s to 'play' with.

Yup, they've been nothing but trouble for me. I ended up going back to 285.79, because at least those work without issue.

Aye. nVidia really haven't been doing well for me in the driver department recently. I'm quite slow with driver updates if my systems are happy - will basically only update if/when a game comes out that has issues for me, or I reinstall, or a new feature is included in a new driver... or I get bored and decide to do it for the hell of it. Basically, the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' system.
The Kepler leaks (and the MSI website info) looks promising for us Surround Gamers. I'd love to have a 680 (or two) on release day, but at present that is just impossible.
