Unless I get a bigger monitor, a 580 will it for me. With a sandy bridge and a 580, I can push enough out to a1920 by 1080 monitor to make pretty much anything I throw at it work... NVidia is going to have to come up with something special to make me want to upgrade.

I still have a GTX 285. Until something dramatically faster happens on a card less than 10 inches, I'm still happy. And I really don't care about Directx 11, as most games don't use it, and nearly as many dont even use DX 10!

pretty sure that already happened. The GTX 460/560 are shorter than 10inches, support DX11, and is faster than the gtx 285. I believe cooler as well.

I watercooled 2x470's, as it was similar to playing next to the oven cranked to broil. No complaints with them now though, minus the fact developers need to get off the dx9 train and start maximizing dx11.

"won't launch until the first quarter of 2011" So Kepler should have been here already huh? lol

NVIDIA has stated that they will send engineers to TSMC if needed if there are any delays so I would rather they take their time and get the yields correct. The current batch of GPUs are more than enough for gaming and physics so no one needs to rush.

I love my 580's as for the next generation, I want them to get it right not get it fast. No more 400 series please.

I think we can all agree really the only successful card out of the 400 series is the gtx 460.
