    Heard many people had very poor SLI performance with these. So it isnt so crazy that the performance test with Crysis on dual g80 SLI were pretty poor!? So when the drivers get better and the game gets optimized i think it will run much better!!? If not, well then we always have the r600!!? :D

    Nvidia keeps releasing new drivers for everything but the 7 series and under for XP. It is really starting to piss me off. Us XP users with anything but an 8800 are still stuck using the buggy 93.81 pile of crap they released back in November. NVidia needs to get their act together and stop shitting on their customers or I am going to jump ship. /rant

    i hope this is good news for crysis performance! that rumor was pretty scary, let's hope it's not true!

    btw, it always scares me a little how they hardly ever list the 7900gto in the supported part of the drivers. it always is supported, they just seem to leave that one out. scary!
