it does seem true that the HD2900pro performs better in 3dmark06, but in-game benchmarks seem to give the 8800 GTS the win.

I dunno. Cause' if you get 120fps in css with a 8800gts. and 130 with a 2900pro.... You probably don't have the "uber l33t OMG precision instincs" to notice the difference..





But who cares, I mean I would milk those 10 more fps for all the bragging rights they were worth.

You won't regret it. The 8800GTS is an awesome card.
