... Oh well then, things will interresing...

My point was ... if you have the money to get the GTX275, then do it, it's better than the GTX 260 for sure.

Ya know, people only make comments like that when they have actually tried it

I'm assuming that means we got a FTW Review due in sometime? Good to know, perhaps it will be a good folding contender.

Problem with the FTW version, its close to the same price as a GTX 285 =( Id like to see if it has much more overclocking potential then the stock or even the sc versions.

I should have that one by the end of the week if the people at Customs can get their act together.

It was supposed to be posted today but I refused a shipment due to out of proportion Customs charges. I will hopefully get that sorted soon.

Hummmmmm, I never play WoW, ....you refer to the WoW Zboard ...

Zboard input

ok I get it now.... it's for use with the COD keyset, But my main concern is Crysis, on 1920 x 1200

Crysis at that resolution with good frame rates and higher qualities is going to need atleast the GTX 275... Zboards are so horible.... they look awesome when you throw them across the room at a wall and explode though... but only for a brief moment.

Honestly crysis is a game that sort of begs for multi GPU setups...

The part you quoted was me refering to you drinking out of a firehose at full blast.

However, thank you for the heads up that we have a review like this comming up.
Its always nice to see the latest incarnations of these cards for sure.
I am very happy with EVGA's lattest additions, and am crossing my fingers they keep it up.

For now I use my 19” crt monitor to play Crysis, I want the 275 for replace my 8800GT, budget is between $ 250 and $ 400 , if the game don’t play better, I will just wait another year, the time they get something to run it well.. I’m patient. I have enough game and so little time to play for now…

I don't believe at any point yet have you Posted your System specs, what CPU and RAM are you going to be pushing your GPU with, as well as PSU?
