Default Re: Was the FX series a failure?

Nvidia messed up big time, but the 6800 series brought it back. I think we should put the FX series behind us as ASAP.

Exactly what was the point of this post? It's like "look at my big fat sig with $6000 worth of PC equipment thrashing last generation's hardware that I can't be bothered with running- any excuses people?"
Pantherman, have you ever actually used an FX-series card? Honestly there hasn't been a game released to date that can't easily be played on most FX cards. Granted, they're not a mighty 6800GT, but some of us have been using these products for a long, long time and they still remain very enjoyable...
