And if the stock is not available before the first of may , I guess many will wait at fall like me, people usually do not buy too much hardware in summer.
Dude I say by May you'll be getting yourself a new Nvidia card.

Maybe sooner !!!

if I said I will wait in September to buy one I have a reason. I make a budget for my OC stuff, I need a phase system. this is the priority now.

it's looks than the yield of Nvidia new Fermi is improving, if so, they will release the real Fermi with all the 512 cores in few months , so peoples will buy a card with 480 cores to wake up few month later with a new Fermi 512 cores.....so are you gone wait for the the 100 % Fermi, or buy the cut version ?

^^^ Nothing but advantages waiting until after the summer, most definitely. I too will be looking at Sept / Oct I think.

Seriously guys, how much more performance do you think a 512 core card would have over a 480 core one?

6 to 7 %, I simply ask if people will wait for the 512 version or purchase the 480 ..

aside with what to be a boost up to 10% with the new ATI 10.3 drivers, willbe interesting to see what version the reviewer will use to compare

Enough of a difference to be tangible, I suspect. And folding should also see a nice improvement.
