This card will get better with time and I predict in a couple of months a lot of you guys will be shutting your mouths about some of the things you have said and most of you here complaining about it will end up with a GTX 260 or 280 in your gaming rig. LOL.

Also in all honesty both the GTX 260 and 280 are throwing out some really impressive numbers considering how early the drivers are. It will only get better people, learn to have patience as its way to early in the game to completely write off either card.
The 8800 GTX was significantly faster the day it was released.

Still, I'd be interested in seeing just how much faster this card is with current drivers compared to ones from back in late '06.
