NOt yet, it left San Jose San fransisco arpimd 10 a.m on Friday by AIR, I would assume it will be at my friend's store on tuesday the latest It is 5 Days max for Express Mail international, thats what he said he asked for so meh!
Haven't Bought Anything yet. its just a GPU upgrade (My step father said he would pay for a new one since he killed my beloved 5770 Vapout X!) Is a CrossfireX Board Different to a crossfire board? I'm kind of leaning towards the 5970... Are its temps better than the GTX480 Fermi under hectic load?
CrossFire is when you use 2 cards in multi GPU but CrossFireX is when you use more than 2 cards(or even 2 cards like 5970 which both are considered as a MultiGPU card).
And yes its temps are better than 480 under load
No you can't run SLI on a CrossFire board.
Also that board that you currently have supports a single 5970 because it has a PCI-E 16x slot.
And yes the current fastest cards are ATI HD 5970 and Nvidia GTX 480
A few years back Nvidia has the biggest market share for graphics cards. So they charge other companies for everything because not supporting the most popular graphics solution isn't a good idea now matter how much Nvidia tries to cut your profit.
But Nvidia's market share is slipping by huge margins since the ATI 4000 series. Now they are in huge trouble since ATI already shipped 6 million dx11 GPUs and Nvidia has shipped like 1000 at most.
