    I thought you guys might like to see this; I got it published on launch day, albeit just barely.

    FWIW it's probably one of the only reviews that uses uses an AMD instead of superfast/expensive Intel setup. Not that that makes it better, but I thought it fitting to review a performance segment video card in a performance segment motherboard/CPU setup. Yes I fully understand the concept of CPU limitation, but I don't agree with using $300 CPUs and $200 motherboards with $200 graphics cards.

    I was kinda blown away by how strong the little bugger felt vs. the GTX 465 and HD 5830. That coupled with its quietness and coolness makes it in my opinion a great buy.

    I had made a thread here and at NV News, [H] and rage3d asking folks what their needs/wants were regarding GF104. I was actually able to use the data I collected in the review... So thanks, techpowerup, for contributing.

    I like the fact that they used a CPU that wasnt the greatest and actually gave about avg to mid range gamer performance comparisons.

    I would have used my x3 @ x4 rig instead, but the x3 rig had an install on it that was in great shape with pretty much all of my games installed already. Besides, the x3 @ 3.6 ghz just about matches the x3 @ x4 @ 3.1 anyway.
