Re: Official GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 260 reviews thread!
pizzaguy, the 8800GTX SMASHED everything available at its launch on early drivers and later the stupidly overhyped HD2900XT also got SMASHED in due process. It was truly ahead of its time back then.
GTX 280 is well overpriced considering it's not outperforming the GX2 or a pair of 8800GT in SLI which is considerably cheaper than the 280. Even enthusiasts wants value for their money, and $650 for something that's slower than a pair of 8800GT SLI isn't very compelling unless Nvidia releases new drivers like today that can actually show the potential in the card.
