How's the 2d quality on todays Nvidia cards, haven't had one since 2 weeks after the launch of the Radeon 9700 Pro. Just remember that it wasn't good and on my 21" Sony everything became much sharper when I got that Radeon and threw out the GeForce 4600.

BTW. That Nvidia card looks very very good and if the rumors are true Nvidia doesn't need to hack anything to make this card fast AKA no scandals with this one as the last gen of cards and compromises which make the Radeon edge out.

The 2D quality issue became a non-issue for most with the FX series.

ok cool.. if the 2d ghost of ye old is gone with the latest FX cards then I might actually consider getting one, I have a new Mitsubish 22" Diamondtron Superbright monitor which is ultra sharp. DEPENDING on a rather scandal free launch.

Glad I bought a PC Power And Cooling ATX 510 Delux modified ($245) last year, won't have to worry about power.

ah...you mentiond ghosting. Did/do you use a VGA extension cable perhaps? The smaller diameter (lower quality) cables will cause this...not the video card at fault. You can get high quality (thicker) VGA extension cables that remove the ghosting completely. Just an FYI...I've seen it firsthand.

adding up all the rumors (ignoring the mpc article that showed up briefly), it appears:

220 million transistors
16 Pipelines
400MHz GPU clock
550MHz memory clock
GDDR-3 video memory
6 Vertex Shaders
PS/VS 3.0
2 molex connectors
480w PSU req.

So I guess the dust buster fan rumor is out the window. At least according to the picture. Also, can anyone speculate as to what the jumpers near the back of the card are for? I think they're jumpers.

this is gonna suck period, talk about power hungry. The NV40 is off my list, I shouldn't have to purchase an uber expensive PSU for this, and the sucker is gonna run so hot with that much juice I'd need even more powerful and louder case fans :screwy: No thanks

Hey Gator, why the knee jerk reaction? Consider the source and also consider that the NDA will not be lifted until 4/14.

My AntecTrue Power 480w PSU and 5 case fanned Acrylic ATX Tower will be ready for an Nv40 or R420. ;)

Sorry man, you're right I should wait for the official Nvidia info release. It just aggrivates me how power hungry and temperature climbing new hardware seems to be these days. :(

With the exception of the almighty Athlon64 ;)

I agree. I purchased a 9600XT over the 9800 or 9700 because of heat and power issues. Im just now upgrading to a thermaltake 420w true power supply and it appears that wont be enuff for the Geforce 6800. Right now im thinking that the Radeon x800 pro with the 12 pixel pipes will be my next card when the prices start to drop (after the XT is released).

Also, check out this thread (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=298425) and note my last post there. ;)

Gator, you've got an antec 430 listed in your sig -so your complaining why ?

Anzek, could you point me in the direction of the information leading you to believe a 420w power supply wont cut it ?

I bothered typing this why ? bored.

mm.. i was looking at pricewatch for powersupply and this is
what i found

$43 - 650W
$22 - 600W
$14 - 550W
$13 - 500W
$12 - 480W
$14 - 460W
$9 - 450W
$14 - 430W
$14 - 425W
$10 - 420W
$7 - 400W
$11 - 350W
$11 - 300W
$13 - 250W


not bad.. some of them are so cheap that can be includded for free in cereal boxes.. :) i think that any 400+ supply should do the Job. but as other have said is more important the quality of the PSU than the numbers.

@nv40: Please do not cross post. You do not appear to have PM enabled so I had to respond here. You have an identical posts here:

yup, definitely...

There is however a good couple brands in the value section, as I've had excellent rail strength from certain PowerMagic power supplies from www.amamax.com ... The X-Case PSU's from there had poopy rails and were good for stock fsb's, but the PowerMagic 450, the 525 Gold, the 450 Dual Fan and the 500 Dual Fan have all performed greatly on air overclocked systems equipped with fairly power hungry vidcards and components...

The X-case PSU's... uhh, the 400 and 500 were much like a Duro brand PSU... Poopy rails on the chart, and even poopier rails when you actually look at em in the BIOS...

I'd think someone might have trouble with a ~ 400w psu if they're running a Prescott as well as the 6800.
