I'll see if I can find it again.

Here are a couple from FiringSquad:

That's exactly what I was looking for. It looks to be almost as fast (and sometimes faster) than 2 x 8800GTX's in SLi at high res.

Looks like I'll be joining the "I paid too much for my video card" group again. When I bought my 8800GTX, I paid $600, so 650 isn't so bad.

Thanks Bman212121
