It Dumps all the heat outside of your case Vs a half and half inside when they have the fan in the centre.

From what I've read on other sites there are no drivers that support TrueHD or DTS Master yet. But LPCM, DTS, and EAC3 work.

Great review SKY - good to see Nvidia back in the $200 range.

I wonder if this will help change XFX's mind with respect to Nvidia products.. they will definately miss out now.

Did I read correctly that there will be an SLI GTX 460 review (hopefully with Metro 2033)?

Great review anyway, kinda disappointed in the Metro 2033 benchmarks though, I'd really like to play that game maxed out. I'm hoping a pair of 460's will be enough.

Probably tonight. 768MB cards and no, they are not enough for Metro 2033 with DoF enabled. The main issue is that even in SLI using AFR means the framebuffer size bites the cards in the butt in situations that are memory limited (Metro 2033, high AA settings or highly tessellated scenes).
