I got 1885 3DMarks to start with, upon installing the new ATI drivers I went to 4570 3DMarks. I have to give ATI a lot of credit. I owned a 8500 and it was a POS. It was only good for TV-out and DVD, but this 9700 has been great (including games). I really hope NV does well though, cause I would really like to go back to them eventually.
what the hell? Maybe NVidia could give us some of that
