8800GTX was probably the best card for performance/longevity I've ever bought.(except the release drivers....I remember waiting for game support for the first couple months)
4870 1gb was a good card...and still is...but doesn't match the GTX for it's increase in performance...
5850 right now is by far the best buy killer performance smallish price....can't go wrong.
Back on topic.
nV is pooched this round....we all know it. While I respect Darth's opinion....it is obvious due to his current affiliation/employment with nV he has access to info that's NDA'd that we do not. I don't think that I'd go out of my way to support a CEO who is blatantly full of ****....the only can of whoop ass he's opening up is on himself....
Everything else aside....I can't wait for this damn thing to get released so I can either go x-fire for cheap....or get a refresh card.
