I did the same with my 9800 Pros (NPs flashed).
Very fast cards though, the smoothness in every game no matter what comes onscreen is really cool. I could get the same result with any high end card (59xx).

I just wasnt using their power at all playing games like Simpsons hit and run, COD and One Must Fall Battlegrounds.
I'm buying the latest and greatest when I have a game that wont play well (at my res, 1024x768) without an upgrade.

I've tried to end my obsession with waiting on and setting up my PC for HL2 and Doom3.. theres games that are (probably) better out today (COD) that I can enjoy now!
My GF4 is a 128mb model so hopefully it will be able to hold off some of the games using larger textures coming out.

Yeah, thats right. I support the NV/AMD/IBM axis of evil.

Yup, I'm doing the same thing. You have until the 24th though to return the card.

I'm looking at buying a 21"/22" monitor so I definitely have to wait until HL2 comes out for the greatest videocard so that I can play it at an awesome resolution on that monitor. (see CRT section if you have any info on big CRTs)

Did you decide against it due to no games being out? Regret wasting your money in it?
