Looks like an absaloute monster...aparentlys the performace jump from the 7900 to 8800 is the same as the FX to 6800 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

the watercooled one is overpriced, but the air cooled GTX isnt to bad for a brand new card<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I just built a new conroe rig with a 7950GX2. I had every intention of upgrading it sometime next summer anyway though for shader 4.0 and DX10 compatibility. I was slightly skeptical though since the recent hardware releases have been less then gleeming (with the exception of conroe) but this looks like an atypical performance increase...just the type that us more skeptical upgraders need to move into action. Exciting times indeed.

LoneRanger I dont think the SLI drivers are ready yet because the single 8800 beats the 8800 in SLI. Darn a single card even beat the X1950XTX in crossfire in many benchies.

The neat thing is that 4xAA seems almost free.

Buyers should be very carefully with this card. It is a monster on a monster system. With &gt; Duo2Core 6600 you'll get about 3000 points more, than with a 7900. With any slower CPU or slower overall system, the performance drops dramatically to a level well below the 7800GTS with an A64 3500 for example.

I'll try to look up the benchmark.

Besides that, you need a decent powersupply. The card needs 400W/26A http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

400W/12V=33A 400W/5V = 80 A processor takes 50-60A very long now its graphics turn !!! :-D Nvidia strikes to back http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif) Maybe to heart. OK thats good engine starter<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

If there wasn't an increase in tax in 2007 in Germany, I would wait. The 775-processors with nVidias new 680i chipset will bring a dramatic increase in performance.

They are no where near the horizon http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

The 680i motherboards are in stock at my local computer store.

But like you I'm waiting to see how the R600 benches before making a decision. The benchmarks I've seen regarding Pacific fighters seem alittle off, I'm wondering if they are benching them using DX instead of OpenGL. Unless ATI's new drivers have greatly improved their OpenGL performance. Anyway this is the first time I've seen benchmarks where an ATI card outperformed an Nvidia card running Opengl in Pacific fighters.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

it got 23000 marks in 3Dmark 2006!!! :O

Also these cards are so bloody powerfull they are CPU bottlenecked under DX9, the performance is expected to increase hugely with the release of DX10, which will removed a lot of the worldload from the PC.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

More opportunity for Nvidia to squeeze big bucks out of people who really dont need such performance yet.

I am still using my ??40 Geforce 5900 Ultra and waiting for the 6800 to come down in price to around ??35-45. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I love trying to find the best system I can build for ??200.

AMD 64's should be really cheap soon thanks to CoreDuo coming out. I will upgrade my 'totally fine, no problems with performance' 2500+ Barton in a few months http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Once I can get a 4000+ or more for ??50.

Yep I am a cheapskate, but I have a great computer for a tiny price http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Funny, though, the first link in the forum you pointed to, is the link I posted above and comes to the same conclusion I did before...? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Right you are Capt. Due to my short sightedness and desire to bash simpletons, I completely overlooked the link that you provided! I guess I'm an idiot as well... :\/<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
