i've been waiting on the new ati card. but i may jump on this one to get my new rig up and running. then go crossfire later this winter.
Not a bad deal considering it beats even the 640mb gts in most benchies and is a good $100 cheaper....
From what I have seen its even as good as 2900xt.... (Don't flame me its just my opinion)
Pretty easy decision imo....
Kinda what I expected upon close to release time. I hope they'll hit $250 in a few weeks when supply and demand are hitting a good ratio. Good price for a good performing card thus far, I wanna see some more reviews and some user reviews after release though.
Either way, good food for thought when I do upgrade after new years.
PCI Express 2.0? Yes, maybe it's cheaper...but unless I completely misunderstand, then to take advantage of the card's potential, you need to fork out another 280 for a PCIE2.0 Mobo...?
Is this true? Would I waste my money going SLI with my 8800 640Mb ???
PCI-E 2.0 is completely pointless. But fortunately, its also backwards compatible.
