Troo dat!! IMO it's proving it's worth in some ways in this game, definitely performing spectacularly for it's age. (I really like the card, but) I don't think the same can be said for 9700 Pro's... And, I said it in another thread, but look for the 5800U to appear in my upcoming gainward 6800NU review, which will probably hit the front page in the 2nd week in Sept.

Well Doom3 arrived today and I have still not installed it, I'm thinking I need it to be dark in the room to get the full flavour.

I'm still pondering over my 5800 that does 450/1000 or the 9800 Pro which does 430/680 for games .. hmmm, I think I'll start off with the 9800 Pro, play the game then swap over.

Regards
Andy

Man, what are the rest of your system specs, and have you done any tweaking to the config? My 10x7 medium quality timedemo nets me about 37 fps (the 8x6 high quality timedemo gives me a higher score, but it hitches a bit every now and again). Granted, I'm a little old on the rest of the stuff, but that seems like a rather large difference!

Those scores give me high hopes for the 6600GT as it looks like a 5800u+DX9+8 pipes

I have a A643000+/MSI K8T Neo/1GB Corsair PC3200, that is the difference. You're cpu limited for Doom3, no offense intended.

None taken! I figured it would be something like that. Another 512MB of memory would probably help a touch. But I also figure I can hold out with what I've got until PCI Express really starts to hit the mainstream. And I'm still impressed with the performance of the 5800U. Doom3 is very playable, and for that my wife is quite grateful (since I didn't have to upgrade)!

Going from 512>1GB of RAM didn't help in Anand's review, I'm still thinking it's just a cpu thing for you.
