    I don't like tomshardware anymore ... the reviews get worse and worse. Plus I prefer to see people like solaris or people on tpu do thier own reviews since they are usualy more relevant and thorough. I know that improved drivers increase the performance, for example if I was to use the drivers that were available when the 8800GT was new it would perform worse than the latest drivers.

    When I first got my x800GTO, I had to play HL2 at 1024x768 to ensure smooth play, but when I updated the drivers years later{lol}, I was able to play at 1920x1200.
