I like to think of the DX10 effects as literally special effects, when you see a boom, expect a more realistic and beleiveable boom with dx10, or if you see smoke or ambient environments (fog, dust) expect to see it more realistic or more stylized
ya u would know

In DX10, the 2900XT is a really strong performer, in some cases even beating down the GTX, and pretty much dominating the GTS in all games.

I don't know if i'm right, but aren't those charts before the good drivers for the 2900 came out?

You are JOKING right? Who cares about what happens when you absolutely cripple the cards. That's the only realm in which that POS pulls ahead... at a whopping 11 fps too...

Real world gaming, reasonable settings to hit the 50+ fps arena, the 320GTS is better than the HD 2900XT, and a fraction of the price.

EDIT: I thought we'd established this before... no?

2900 is not a POS, it is a good bang for the buck card. The GTS is not better than thee 2900, the 2900 is better...

Yes a fraction of the price. Like 7/8s of the price lol.

280 vs 380? That's 35% more expensive, and for a card (the hd2900xt) that "can sometimes" beat the GTS, I'd still suggest the GTS any day.

the 2900xt beats the GTS most of the time, but not worth the extra $100 i would say
