@Braineater: That's good news. No points, but the science still gets done!

@Zlojack: I thought the 285s were at Evga for a step up to 295s?

I'm still in the queue

The X58 was there for a step up to the Classfied, but now it's back

Ok, so just when I was going to bring the GTX 285s back online, I got the step up email for the 295s

So I've sent one card out and will wait for the 295 then send out the other one. It will be nice to get 4 GPUs pumping out the PPD!

Tonight I'll get the i7 920 back up, as well.

I think the best thing for you to do is to wait until I pass you in points before you bring your rig back online...you know, just to make sure you have everything hooked up correctly

Also, will be sending you a PM about that thing we were discussing

I had a feeling you wouldn't be satisfied with those 260's for long, especially after you went for SugarJ's silencer...

I hope you have less trouble with the 275's than you've had with the 260's.

I'll be interested, it will let me know how long I've got...

I'm thinking hard about the 275s as well. I was initially going to just buy another factory OC'd 260 216 because The clock speeds are better for the most part and you really can't beat the price atm. But then when I saw the 4890s on sale for $269 I knew when Nvidia does decide on a price point to enter the 275s at it would have to be much lower than initially predicted. Can you image..275s hitting the streets at $269, that would be sweet. I highly suspect they'd beat a vanilla 280 w/o to much trouble. I know the vanilla 280 has 1GB of ram but the 275s come with higher core, shader, and mem so the competition between the two is evened out somewhat. I'm guessing they'd do 8500ppd. They really should have called it the GTX 282.5 heh. I'm rather frustrated that not one out of the 5 big review sites I've read not one of them includes a direct comparison between the 280 and the 275. Maybe Nvidia would rather not have the consumer see how similar they are in performance. Whatever the case may be I see the 260s and 280 going dirt cheap after the 275 starts selling.
