I agree, It's one of the reasons I'm so excited for i7/x58 so I can hopefully go SLI with an intel chipset hahahaha, HOPEFULLY!

Great review Sky, thanks again for all the work!

Great review Sky. That's quite a good price point for the 280. It's like right on the spot for performance. But for the games I play, I'd get a pair of 4850's and crossfire them. Plus having two cards looks like pure AWESOMENESS. Keep up the good work!

Nice review Skymtl, I was thinking yesterday you hadn't posted a review for almost a week.

How long did it take to put the EVGA stickers on the fan for the heatsink shots?

Just a heads-up about the overclock; you managed the following with this OCX version:

Final Overclocks:

Core: 726Mhz
Shader: 1592Mhz
Memory: 2518Mhz (DDR)
Using my BFG GTX 280 stock, I managed to hit:

Final Overclocks:

Core: 729Mhz
Shader: 1566Mhz
Memory: 2592Mhz (DDR)
Could both cards be basically the same?

Probably the same just the OCX are binned so they will hit higher clocks more consistently.
