Default Re: What's most important to you with regards to GTX 460?

The 8800 is less than 4 years old. The first reviews surfaced on Nov 8, 2006.

I'm glad that nvidia is ramping up their hardware design, but they are still WAYYYYY behind where they need to be. The money in this market is in the low-end, which nvidia still doesn't have in DX11 cards.

On the plus side, it seems like the price of the GTX 460 is going to be perfect. I think the light bulb has finally come on.
