Got excited for a minute, because if they were 3Dmark11 scores, they'd be in range of my 6850 (P4433.)  Ironically, if I had a GTX580 to tweak for this week's target scores, I wouldn't much need a GTX465.  Thanks anyway!

GTX580, mmmmm....wouldn't that be something...

the actual competition this week is getting the actual score precisely to enter   so  down clocking would come into play as well....with a 580

Not hardly, that's a fantastic start to a new and incredible PC as I see it.

Congrats again,......you deserve it man.

Agreed,........probably because they're just as interested in this stuff as we are, or more.

Ha-Ha!

All of them have responded with posts concerning their wins on the forums, so I can safely assume that they contacted HH to give their shipping info!
