Correct. Plus run a couple of tests of Crysis, at DX10, Very High, with and without AA. At reasonably high resolutions if possible, 1600+.

So many "benchmarks" from sites, not a single one for Crysis that people actually care about, in Very High...

Europeans, if they would post any sites that sends stuff to other countries, not just locally...

Much appreciated,

[H]OCP says not playable in 1600x1200 in very high, no AA in their review. :(

Seems the reviewer rules are keeping most site from mentioning this.

Yea, after a second take it doesn't have the same center groove. I think Zalman needs to sue for copyright infringement though. :p

Roswill RCX-Z5 Ultra?

Btw, those rigs look badass with all those cards. That's like more than 2k of equipment with the video cards alone!

Yes its a rosewill. Its not as good as a zalman but its more than enough for a Phenom.

::(:

I was hoping for more 9 series pricing. Wishful thinking. I'm going to wait till a 9600GT or 8800GT style card I think.

I'm finally retiring my 8800GTX. Been using it since 11|2006. Ordered a GTX 280 with a standard return policy on 2 day from Newegg.

One thing I like about the 260 is I don't need a new power supply. 6 pins ftw.
