2.With the present mature drivers from Nvidia, this card performs very similar to a R9700 Pro,sometimes a bit better, sometimes a bit worse.
3.I never said the card wasn't good,I just said that you could get this card for much cheaper once the 5900 would be released. The same would stand for the 9700 Pro, as its price dropped when the 9800 Pro was released. That doesn't take away from the card.
Sorry you are receiving so much flak for posting a simple opinion. Seems some people just can't have a discussion without getting into personal agendas...I am sorry you are the target for that kind of behavior...

Meanwhile, back on topic...

At this point in time, I think that is a good call for obvious reasons...

I think your bias is showing again, there ain't nothing wrong with 3dm2k3 as a benchmark so long as you just take the results for what they are; an apples to apples comparison of true DX9 performance...simple as that.

No wonder all the nVidia enthusiasts don't like it so!

NV30 is a sensitive subject for NVIDIOTS and fanATIcs alike...

Can't change that...

Two things:

1. Which drivers did you use? Supposedly the last 3-4 sets have had those cheats in 'em.

2. Did any of those games you used happen to be timedemos? If so, the clipping game cheat is just as effective on them unless you made custom demos. (Sorry, the grey on black is just too hard for me eyes to read on your review. )

Nope, and being an enthusiast of both companies I'm just running with it for all it's worth to find out where it ends up going.

What is funny is that fanboy-ism (from both companies) is getting more and more serious. People used to make jokes about the others but now they are making personal insults and the like (note; not (yet) in this thread BTW).

The love for a company is almost becoming some sort of belief...

How long before we have a 3D-Jihad or something?

Bombings at the buildings...
Murderattemps at CEO's...

OK, I'll stop now...

I didn't use 3DM2k3 not because there's something wrong with the benchmark but because of the recent events concerning the whole "cheating" issue. Since both companies did something Futuremark didn't like, - even if I don't consider ATI was cheating - I chose not to include it.

And I wasn't really trying to support Nvidia with my post, I was only letting people know about a new site many of you here will find interesting.

Oh, so you're just trolling for hits pimping an obsolete card while supporting a highly suspect company?

Well in that case I couldn't imagine any problems with it.

Hey, I'm not a regular poster here too (as you can see by my score), but if I offended you, I'm sorry...

You came here pimping your site under the guise of a newcomer, if you would have came and posted saying "Come check out this review I did on my new site" that would have been an entirely different matter.
