Really there is a better performing card then the GTX 280? Cause I have never seen one.

Better price, yes. Better price/performance, yes. But pure performance, nope.

Nice incentive for those who care about esoteric benchmarks but I'm not so sure about EVGA. Great warranty but they effectively take away the ability to over-clock stock cards very much by carefully assigning their cards to different "above" stock reference clocks. The higher the clock the more you pay--

NVIDIA will strike back once they shrink the G200 series-they are still very powerful but just too expensive now ATI has hit us with the 4850/4870.
