nVidia won't die over this, they still make a kicking mobo and NV40 next year should bring them back into the game.

They definately lost this battle though, but there will be a new war next year. :)

omg this made me lol. Glad you reacting with humor. :afro2:

I just gotta wonder what the people at nVidia are thinking. We know they read the boards and they'll probably see this thread. Looks like their Judgement Day has come.

And yeah, I hope you find a buyer for your fx...

This seems kinda sad because since jakUp got his NV30 he was like one of the positive Nvidia people.

I hope jakUp you continue to post here at NVnews as I enjoyed reading your comments, and your ethusiasm :)

Now you need to change your sig, to "soon to be ___"

Glad to see that you saw the light. Like DW said, hopefully Nvidia will get back in the game. We need them to compete instead of cheat.

We (all of those who screwed up and bought FX 5900 card) should get on the streets and start burning NVIDIA flags !!!!

My kids are both in school now full-time and I got free time from 9-2 each day, I wanna get something so I can earn some dosh for new kit. ;)

Not yet though, I'm still getting caught up on repairing my house for a while...but I'm doing odd jobs in the mean time as they come by. Got a few PC repairs lined up and a roofing job, and I still ain't really checked me old construction contacts.

Money is neat, I want more of it. :cool:

That was a sweet sticker lol. But the comedy value of your post is worth ripping it up hehe.

What happens when Nvidia redeems themselves with a future product?
Make sure the ATI sticker is low-tack. :D

But who would dare to buy a NV40 after nVidias poor track record with the NV30 and NV35? They seems to be two hole years behind ATI in term of technology since the 9700 PRO is a far superior dx 9 video card than nVidia. Hell the 5900 ULTRA even got beaten by the 9600 PRO by quite a margin.

Do any nVidia employees post here, they can she the collapse of their empire. Its amazing because in the past year I've seen a lot of people go over to ATi for their hardware and what not. Amazing transition.

jakup can I have ur 5900 Ultra....worth a shot?

unless VIA comes back with a very impressive offering, nVidia isn't gonna go anywhere...

The nForce chipset is the only reason why AMD is somewhat competative with Intel right now.... And from what I hear about the third chipset (the 64-bit one), it is nothing to sneeze at.

I like the pictorial:D:D

but the nv sticker does it's job perfectly up to sticker specs, being as sticky as possible ;)

you don't even have to use cheats (like nailing it to the case to make it look like its a sticky sticker while in fact it's just a piccy thats nailed to a case and pretending to be a sticky sticker) and ya still complaining? :p

The colors were washed out, and the sticker would only let him stick it in one place.
