It will limit the 6800NU, yeh, but in many DX9 games (read: FarCry, Half Life 2) I think you'd still see a vast improvement with the 6800NU over the 5900XT due to its much faster shader performance. Plus the 6800NU also has got much better AA quality. For $100 more you can get the 6800NU and put it in your machine now, then move it to your new machine when you get it, and use it to hold you over until NV45 is cheap
We're all in it together.
