Good price, but these were about this price at the end of last year. Can't help but feel nVidia and ATI are holding their prices far too high, compared to previous generations.

I know it's a £100 more at the moment, but isn't it worth waiting for the Nvidia 480 to come down because it is better at anti-aliasing, and has Physx as well? If you buy a game that uses Physx a lot and you don't use SLI/Crossfire, but use an ATI card, then you get a pathetic framerate.

Quite a few games use physx...

Though that rather limited list becomes even shorter when you realise Arkham and UT3 are the only two worth playing.

Great price.
The only comparative card you can get is the gtx480, but have you to ask yourself, is the 5% increase in gaming worth the extra 30% in price and the 480 is horrendously loud and power hungry.

Its not worth waiting for the price of the 480 to come down, it runs to hot and uses way to much power for a single card. It is worth waiting for the newer cards tho. Ati are set to unvail their new line up in september and nvidia are set to release a beter gtx 460 with 384 cores, and a gtx 480 with a full 512 cores and rumoured better heat/power...

"This game listing is not representative of all titles that will be available, just those that and it's developer and publisher partners are able to disclose. To avoid confusion, PC titles that do not take advantage of PhysX hardware acceleration are ommitted from this listing."

Is there no QC department or does their grammar just suck that much?
