I hope Sky can get a review of this up.
I have 7 days left to step-up and since my GTX 570 is gettting errors while folding (and an RMA was denied as folding is the only problem it has) a step-up to this might be a good route.

With EVGA saying it performs on par, or better than the GTX 580, while providing surround and 3d.... this card could be a winner for those who want a "single card solution" like myself.
Plus, if you check the PCB on EVGA's website.... it looks like there is an SLI connector...... so possible Quad 460's? hmmm

I'd love to see this priced around $350 if so, id make the latteral move from a 4slot 460 SLI to a single card solution.

You can have two 460GTX MSI cyclone for around 240$+ taxes. I don't see this being more than 270$ or it would rather be a waste of money IMO.

Why not 2 560s?

How else are you going to get rid of soon to be obsolete cards for more than the lowered MSRP?

I'd be very surprised if the price is anywhere near 2x460's on their own.

It cannot be SLI'd , they were produced too fast and it never got removed (the sli connector).

That being said this is a great option for those who prefer nVidia and have an AMD rig.

Which is where I sit right now.

I'm interested on the performance on these. I have a 5870 right now, and was planning on getting another one. But some game I play dont like crossfire very well. Wonder how much power will be needed to run this card. EVGA site says 700w???

Yeah but look at the system they are running, 990X etc etc.

In all honestly a solid 600W will run your whole system no problem.
