    Radeon HD 7750 is just much better... Maybe GK 107 with GDDR5 memory will look better

    Dat power consumption... That is the only thing great about this little card. GDDR5 should make it on per with the 450/550 from the old gen i think. Maybe GT(X)(S)650

    On the overclocking page, I'm seeing a graphic from the MSI Geforce 670 review.

    I can't understand why nvidia set the price that high. Very disappointing.

    GDDR5 version would be nice to see performance wise also with SLi even there ain't any bridge on the cards but still i guess SLi will work with anatolymik's hypersli patch so would be nice to see what kinda of performance that will bring ^^;

    Wow this card really sucks when it comes to price/performance. Actually it just flat our sucks. :shadedshu What is Nvidia doing?! There GTX 670 card is great, but still out of reach for the main stream. They have the enthusiasts (gtx 670, 680) and the idiots (gts 640) covered in their line up, now it is time to release the GTS 660 for the masses.

    Lower the price, slap on a passive cooler and you have a winner. They're really trying to milk it, aren't they?

    I think it would be nice to mention at that point in the review that the orange port is a DVI-I port and the white port is a DVI-D port, and only the orange DVI-I port can be used to with an adapter to provide a VGA signal.

    Nice review W1zz, but pretty useless card, at least at that price. The thing is it's almost as if they wanted to sabotage this card. DDR3 memory and a slow one at that and only 900 Mhz on the core when their much bigger flagship chip does 1 Ghz with low power consumption.

    On the graphic card chart...

    GT 640 (GK107)
    1.3 billion transistor count also 900mhz core clock not 902 unless its overclocked.:laugh: You did put the correct Core Clock on the sentence above it.

    GT 520 (GF119)
    585 million transistor count and 900mhz for memory speed

    GT 440 (GF108)
    810mhz core speed

    GTS 450 (GF106)
    902mhz memory speed

    HD 5550 (Redwood LE)

    Nvidia does their best to keep the fanboy ePeens hard (gtx 690, gtx 680, gtx 580....), but it seems AMD has the business common sense to keep the low and mid-range offerings strong.

    Much to expensive. You can get a HD7750 for that. Not worth it compared to the €75 HD6670. I'm forced to agree with qubit. :(

    BTW, I actually missed the 7750 in the power consumption charts.

    Well if you don't have proof that you had the extended warranty I side with them with my whole heart. The registration probably fell through somehow. And the fact that they didn't make the card five years ago has nothing to do with it.
