has any1 seen this?
it seems like they dont hav adequate info on it.
their listings in NON-RECOMENDED brands include some good companies like Albatron etc etc.

Also they miss a few good brands in their listings.

GeForce FX5900 SE/XT, I thought that was a good card for the price and better than the 5700 Ultra?

The Guide is not accurate. it misses a few good brands like inno3d, galaxy etc...
brands like albatron, palit etc. come under non-recomended :S

According to the guide a geforce buyer should only go for bfg or evga or gainward or asus, remaining arnt good.

it should be updated!

It is better than an FX5700Ultra, but the FX5900XT is overpriced. You can get similar performance from a R9600XT for a mere $135us, or the way more powerful R9800Pro for a few dollars more. FX5900XT is not a bad card for what it is, a glorified GF4TI with crap DX9 support, but they definetly cost too much. I don't understand why they recommend the FX5700Ultra though, those cards are an utter waste of money considering the more powerful FX5900XT often sells for the same price or a little bit more.

What Nvidia AGP buyers really need is a 6600 non-GT AGP for around $170 ;)

PS - I reserve the right to dis on the FX5900XT as I am an owner and well aware of it's excellent DX8 support but crap DX9 support :p
