    People were saying the same thing 6 months ago about 1 GB cards.

    This is one loud juice-sucking monster though. No thanks.

    And back then they didn't hold any added value...

    left4dead results are very interesting. At 1650x1080 it beats out a GTX295! Could this somehow be a cpu limitation?

    I'd like to see the test ran a few more times with those cards and see if the results are random, like the 250 comes in second, then third, then first, then back to third or something. If that's the case, it might be cpu with random system stuff running in the background that's interfering.

    The fact that you provide a Folding@Home benchmark, and a brief introduction to it in the review makes me exponentially happy. I hope more people adopt at least providing some numbers for new cards, as it really does make life easier. Awesome job.

    i think it's some kind of bug in l4d. the 3 cards that perform a lot faster are probably not known to the renderer of l4d.

    295 = 146.4 and 250 = 146.6 is definitely a cpu limitation. 0.2 fps (0.13 %) is well within any margin of error for benchmarking

    hmm i agree W1zzard, an congrats on another awesome review. I recken the only car that would really benefit from more VRAM would be the GTX 285
