Ordered a 580 yesterday from newegg, shipped this afternoon and should be here Thursday! smile.gif

I have been waiting patiently since last month for the 6970 launch, but the benches from the folks in Germany that got the card early were a disappointment. Folks were saying the 6970 would meet or beat the 580, and it turned out to be blatantly false.

Not to mention I DL'ed the new AMD 10.12 drivers and the new Control Center won't even open up for me. Must be a bug.

sick, what's your loop look like?

for me, i dont have the budget for 570 + EK block... so i had to choose between the 470 + EK block or a 570 stock

choice was simple smile.gif

maybe in the future i'll put it under water

I gave up on ATI because they're name changed to AMD and because they did the whole renaming thing. Plus, I got a great price on my GTX 480 so I'm happy.

I like Not A Good Idea's signature too.
