Don't game much, will wait for the prices/availability to stabilize then look for a sale to pick up a 470. Once I see how it folds I may slowly replace my 260's and 275's.

E) for me. My GTX 275 can handle all the games I play at 1920x1200.

Either 2 x 480's or 2 x 470's......haven't quite decided yet, BUT, will wait till the Fall, another month we'll be into May...too damn warm to sit in front of my Rig anyhow and Fall will give things a chance to "settle down"...prices, Drivers etc, perhaps even a new release with full 512 Cores vs current 480 Cores .......remember the GTX 260 w 192 Core then about 3 months later they released the 216 Core!!!

Better off to wait a bit me thinks....2 x GTX 280 SLI fine for now !

That is very true. My 4870x2 makes summers horrible. I'd be scared to know what people feel like with 2 or 3 GTX480's.
