Look at what a bit more searching did!!!

Video Card

Asus GTX470 - $349
PNY GTX470 - $349
Gigabyte GTX470 - $359
Asus GTX480 - $499
Gigabyte GTX480 - $520

Sketchy website...don't order from them but pricematch at NCIX or other places that accept price matches.

NCIX doesn't accept price matches on out of stock items. Worth watching once some boards hit the street though.

theyre supposed to be reference designs till custom ones come out, right? :)
so the sticker with co logo is the difference, and of course customer support/rma/warranty terms and periods

We could be getting unboxings/impressions tomorrow morning. eVGA just shipped out "some" of their vanilla GTX480s/GTX470s. Newegg.com just sold out of everything they listed in stock within 10 minutes or so. Surprisingly, PNY took only 8 minutes to sellout and eVGA took about 5 minutes and people are getting shipped notices from newegg. Could be interesting.

And here I am all sad.

My car broke and has since broke my video card budget.

newegg.com anyway. eVGA shipped part of their preorders today and dividing it up over the next few days. Amazon currently has a shipping date of the 8 or 9th on preorders. People claimed NCIX had both of their eVGA GTX480s listed as in stock.

preorders are quite interesting. it secures the board maker some cash flow to order said parts. one might say its like borrowing money with little interest from the buyer and then make a nice profit(i hope).

whoever gets there card plz take pictures, im interested in some pcb clsoe ups .lets see if these 'vanilla' boards are really all the same ;)
