Nvidia claims memory bandwith is "pass'e" and that nowadays it's all about shaders. I agree with you though. It's a bottleneck, but not as huge of a one as the cpu bottleneck these cards have.

I'm still holding out to see what ATI has this fall. I'm hoping for more bandwith from them, and seeing as a x850 xt pe holds it's own in d3d against the 7800GT, i'm thinking we'll see a clone of last generation...ati ontop in d3d, and nvidia ontop in opengl.

If the 7800 Gt sells @ $399, it's a great deal.....but if it stays @ $449 for a while...ehhhhh.....pricewatch has 7800gtx's for $50 more. Not smart pricing if you ask me.

What is the deal with that "500MHz, 1 GHz effective" RAM clocking?

Wow, great price and performance. The GT is going to fly off the shelves.

What bothers me the most is that the 7800GT pcb doens't seem to support 512mb ram.

Well, I JUST ordered a 6800GT to replace my 5950U. It was more of a tide-me-over until I can get a rig with an X2 4400 and either dual 7800GTXs or dual R520s.

A mere 6800GT. Well, it came to about $290 at MonarchComputer and as MSRP was just dropped to $299 I probably could have gotten a better buy next week. Oh well, live and learn. ;-)
