Interesting. I'll take that as a subtle sign that I'm gonna be pissed off.

Oh well, it's not like I don't already have a GTX 460. :D

:hello:


Why should you be?
I didn't say anything!

Is it that Seagate hard drive that was labeled as a "Radeon". :shock:

That's an interesting form factor for a GPU. :grin:

This silence is deafening.

Not only was I right about Leon Hyman's subtle gestures, but I'm going to read into this and say that I'm correct, and we will be seeing a GTX 550 review in the near future.

If it's as fast as a GTX 460, that will be a very good thing.

I've personally scrapped my SLI plans for the time being and will hold out for a cheap GPU that doubles my current performance. If I can get a used 460 for next to nothing, I will do it, though.
