You're going to pull something from 3 years ago to argue with?
How desperate can one be?
Yes, because people's opinions don't tend to change at all over periods of three or four years, do they?
The 2900XT was a crap card which is why I traded it in on an 8800 Ultra. I can pull past posts of me saying so if you want to go down this road. I'd advise you not to go there, though. I even wrote a review of it on here where I benched both cards against each other.
Also, do you realize that you're arguing with someone who will shortly have two 470s on water? DangerDen is sending me two 470 blocks as we speak.
