Nvidia definitely has a winner on its hands with the 6 series.
As for the immature rantings and petty jealousies of some on this board, I say GROW UP!!!!! I'm not trying to show up anyone here. While I have two systems with 6800 GTs, I'm not trying to show off to anyone. My systems are hardly "state-of-the-art" anyway. Don't always assume that someone's motives are bad.
The bottom line is that Nvidia is back and has proven to be a real competitor.
The FX series is now in the past. Soon the 6600 GT will be released and everyone will be able to use the 6 series technology. That's certainly good news. Let's see how ATI responds to this new product.
The FX card in my system and the FX cards still being sold disagree with this assertion. Nvidias continued support of the card does as well. It's not like Nvidia is going to bury the cards existence.
