My System Specs


Well, thanks to the sale of some kit, and some money for my B'Day at the end of the month, just pulled the trigger on one of these.

Same or better performance (slightly better I think) than my sli'd 560 ti cards without the massive heat / power draw that SLI was giving me (I was pushing over 600W folding), as well as an upgrade from 1G Vram up to 2G which seems to be getting into the range of being a bottleneck.

As far as the extra warranty goes.... It's great that they offer the option, but I can't see keeping a card longer than 3 years so I'm sure that the standard will be fine for me, although depending on the cost I might be interested in paying a little bit for security WRT easy RMAs.

Now it's just a waiting game, and hopefully when they do get stock, they get it in the TO warehouse rather than the Vancouver one.... ground shipping from one coast to the other is for the birds!!!! :)
