    The card is high on the price tbh, thats it biggest negative. It owns when it comes to Tesolation/dx11 stuff though which is what all the next games will probably include.

    Installed 480 SLI for a friend, his system was maxed up. Power drain was rediculous on the cards, ~600W to run both!. He played BC2, max res, max settings, hitting ~80fps. took them out, dual 5970, power drain was ~450W, on BC2 (same settings as before) was hitting ~95fps.

    Fermi cards are overpriced and seriously overclocked 9800GTX series with extra power consumption!

    The drivers, esp SLI ones are not, to say the least optimised. He will get MUCH better after a couple of revisions (fps that is)
