Steer clear of the Single Fan EVGA GTX460 SC EE series.

It runs hot and it runs REALLY loud.  It would be a fantastic card if it weren't for those two problems, as I'm able to run all games on High @ HD levels on my 40' Sony Bravia

FYI my card hits 90+C no matter what games I play or however low I have the gfx settings at...  so thats a good indicator alone of a dud.

I'm in the process of either RMA'ing mine or swapping it for a twincooler Gigabyte GTX460

forgot10: just ordered the i7 2600k, ASUS P8P67 Pro + the rest as original plan. feeling pretty excited :D

Hope you weren't planning on using the on-CPU GPU. :) (Including the en/decode chip). You can't use ANY of the GPU stuff with the P87 series boards.
