Nah not depressed.

3 reasons:

1: nVidia's drivers are better

2: My GTX doesn't sound like its about to take off

3: I know I'll change my card when DX10 cards come out



Nice card tho

LOL good point. The X1K is quite loud, but christ ever stick your hand back there? Pushes at least 60 CFM at 100% if not more.

Yeah but the nvidea cooling fan has a great throughput with none of the sound. the cooler on the GTX is far superior IMO
