I'm gonna ride this 6800gs to ****, upgrading every year is unaffordable for me at this time. **** those that pictures looks amazing I cant wait to be playing games that have those graphics one day.

A+ certified.

Looks nice I just hope the program itself is multi threaded sure it will not help your score but maybe my PC will actually let me run it this time without an error message.

6800gt oc'ed to 420/1.1 runs all the games I want perfectly..

Unless you just have some sort of freak need to have every new cpu part out. Than you can wait till you have a justifiable reason to upgrade.

I think companies sure do have the consumers right where they want them" WOW THE G70 IS COMING OUT I CANT WAIT"

SO SAD..lol..
