Default Re: My first impressions. GTX 280 Tri-SLi ( Pic. )

I want to see GTX280 vs SLI 8800GTX in 1280*1024 and 1680*1050 (1600*1200) resolution. All these review for insane high resolution are totally pointless for 98% of gamers around the globe.

Right because so FEW people have those ultra expensive 400 dollar 24" monitors that run at 1920x1200

I'm glad to see reviews for this card putting in lots of 2560 and 1900 res benchmarks - about time high end cards are tested for what they are meant for

If you're going to spend 650 on a card I would hope you'd have spent 400 at least on the monitor

Why the hell would you have two 8800gtx in sli for 1280x1024 to begin with ?

No they are not. I run 1680*1050 (Widescreen and it's sweet spot).

I'd like to see some 1280*1024 for just GTX280 VS 8800GTX. I'm still rocking some super sweet 19" CRT's that I'm not going to get rid of for a long time.

I agree. It's about value of the card. I want to see single 8800GTX vs GTX280 and SLI 8800GTX vs GTX280 in 1280*1024 and 1600*1200 resolution to see how GTX280 scales.
