Default Pre Order GTX480 ? [BSN]

first rumors out there :

nVidia GeForce GTX 480 shows up for preorder but the specs look fishy... - Bright Side Of News*

Maybe you guys knew this, but this article seems to imply an end of march launch and review (march 27th). For those who dont want to click, the price is 700 $ US !

It's simply a small store that wants to be seen. They are not even on NVIDIA's official retailer's list. As such, I wouldn't even bother looking at that...

Yeah I saw news about the pre-order but realized that it was just a retailer trying to get some attention.

Seems to be working!
