AMD could have a year head start on drivers and in my mind they would still be worse. I have had bad luck the past year with my AMD drivers, never once had problems with Nvidia drivers. As for hardware, I can wait :p

yeah there is? Maybe not in straight up performance to price and hassle ratio:D but GTX580 SLI is faster, cooler, quiter, and a bit more efficient for the same price you spent on the 2 GTX480s.

perfect image resize
no dinamic range working
no cusom rezolution
260
imposible to do image resize on a HDTV(second monitor)
repaired dinamic range on 261
no custom resolution
Image resize has steps from 10 pixels to 10 pixels ....
280
-Custom rezolution not working
-video color setings dinamic range not working on dual monitor
-Image resize has steps from 10 pixels to 10 pixels ....
285 to 290 repair custom resolution and video dinamic ranges but:
-20 %of the movies(avi) have a image who is broke in pieces
-problem on some games
-Image resize has steps from 10 pixels to 10 pixels ....
295
-repaired the movie problem
-again not working the custom rezolution
-again video color setings dinamic range not working
-Image resize has steps from 10 pixels to 10 pixels ....

I belive it become a politic on Nvidia not to make a complete functional driver from the moment Windows 7 was lanch.
