That what I dont like....having to have a stupid profile, or fiddling around for an hour to get your game to work with a 2 gpu card....I just want a single card solution, with more power than an 8800 ultra

nvidia will be delivering that aspect I think. I doubt we will see a single card solution from ATI anytime soon that can top the ultra, and def not the 98xx series.

The blurring helps 30-35fps look a bit better....anything below 30fps I find too choppy.
