    Default Now that Beta has been announced, who just ordered up a GTX580?

    Besides me, that is.

    Ordered direct from EVGA with free ground shipping, so about $18 less than NewEgg (who are out of stock at the moment anyway).

    Mister Kittah has one. (Actually 2, Golden Tiger I think is his name (the one previously referred to), and Kilrathi.) I wouldn't personally recommend them unless you have an unlimited budget. I'd recommend instead people wait for the GTX 560 or GTX 570 that is sure to followin 4-6 months, or if you are flexible, consider one of the AMD 69xx cards coming just around the corner (rumored to be out before the end of Dec.)

    I have a radeon 5850, but I'll probably be getting a 6950 or -70 when they're released! I am bottlenecked by my craphole CPU though - so that'll be the first thing I need to upgrade! ;p Though I know Kainzo is going for the GTX 580 ASAP - he has a 480 already, but he wants THE BEST lol

    Yup you wouldn't, better spent elsewhere. I recommend taking out a less fortunate family to dinner for turkey day.

    eh I'm just throwing in a second GTX 460 Sonic OC Edition will run better than a crossfired 5870 setup. Should be good times.

Now though, as the day fades, I will cherish these last few moments with waffles.

    My brother ordered one, not even interested in Rift ... sad times.
    I'll stick with my 470 OC edition...
    Need a new CPU more lol poor dual core has earned a retirement.

    Aren't the 580s like 500+ bucks? Yeah, no thanks!

    I'm actually holding out and building an entirely new system when Sandy Bridge comes out, but I'll like go Radeon. Nvidia is so meh.

    You can't win an Nvidia GeForce GTX 46 unless you are from NA.

    I was at the event when Tom from nvidia released all the info and technology on the 580. PDXLAN FTW. That night I won a 5870 from Darren (from AMD) I have to say the new heatsink tech is awesome. And it runs tesselation better than any card out there right now.
