Thats why I actually bought a 2900XT to test out, everyone elses reviews just aren't telling me what I want to see. Especially when it's the same apps over and over and at astronomical resolutions. I wanted to see 1280x1024 with 4xAA/16AF and AAA or trans aa (nv) - the 2900XT is really weak at this resolution, but the GTS excels!

So far the GTS I have (648/1000) is really smacking it down. The 2900XT gains so little when overclocked, the GTS gains so much. AA performance is abysmal, hopefully they can correct that in a newer set of drivers, they've made progress but from my real world benchmarks they still need alot of work.
