Hehehe... I've have a thread similar to this in a couple of days...

Congrats on the card. Happy gaming!

Edit: I also see you have my soon-to-be case, unless it's the 932, hard to tell. What's it like? I'm a little unsure about build quality. The Alu being flimsy and what-not.

I have the 932, & it a very solid, sturdy case. So much room on the inside. The tool free design is pretty sturdy, too.

Hmm, I've just ordered the ATCS 840, which from what I can tell is almost identical to the 932 barr a removeable motherboard tray. Good to know. :)

That is one huge card. And I thought my GTS 250 was massive.

Looks pretty nice Count! Have fun with it!

Let me know what kind of temps you get while gaming. I've been considering the much cooler running 460 now, but i had originally planned on getting a 470 to replace my 4870.

The 470 is actually shorter than my old 275. I have the fan spinning at 65% using evga precision. Temps idle at 40-43 & gaming get up to 70-75. It is not that much hotter than the gtx275. I will say this...the crossfire 5770 cards I had actually had a steadier frame rate...:(

Also, I think the 470 is eol, so you can snap one up for very cheap...the exact same card I have is now going for $239 after mir at Tiger Direct (I paid $295).

Sounds good. Heat was the main reason i was hesitant on the 470. Newegg has the ASUS version in stock for $289 now, which is the same as the going price for a 5850. Looks like the 480 is down to $450 now as well. How loud is the fan at 65%?

Probably. But, now you can do 470 SLI!
