    I thought that was a very good and thorough review, and helpful, but I find the conclusion:

    either contradictory or sponsor-upped

    P.S. I know it's a bit of extra work, but review comparisons including one (or more) of the X8xx range would be very useful, since many people of this generation are now in the "time to upgrade" mode. I'm not so sure X16xx or X18xx or X19xx owners would consider upgrading to HD2xxx given the recent lack-luster reviews, but for us old timers, an upgrade from X800 is overdue.

    if you look at just FPS, GeForce 8 wins .. but if you consider the HD acceleration features this is definitely a great card. if you want only a desktop card without gaming this is also a good choice because for the 20 bucks price difference you can have a couple of beers :)

    it is very hard giving a numeric score that makes everybody happy. that's why there is a conclusion text and a whole review text. maybe we should just get rid of the score....

    I am not sure I agree with lemoadesoda, I mean, Wizz gave it a 9 because of the features it has for the price.. It is in no way a gaming card but is one of the best HTPC cards on the market now for under $100.. so a 9 doesn't sound to bad, maybe you should seperate the score into a couple of different categories, for eg. HTPC, GAMING, NOISE, PRICE or something similar...

    Little faster for 20 bucks. Not bad, the XT should have a higher memory ring bus.

    Depending on prices over here in Aus when HD2xxx AGP are released, I might be upgrading my media comp to a 2400XT or 2600PRO AGP (If and when they are released :))

    Yep, the card you have would be good for watching HD movies/Blu Ray. Although the 8600 is better for gaming, your card will work great for watching HD stuff.
