Not too many.. Other then the power consumption of the 2900 is much higher than a 8800Ultra.

the 2900 has a slightly higher core clock, but a much lwoer memory speed than the 8800.

The 2900 has a aloooot more stream processors too

Price wise? That's obvious.. but other than those.. Not much XD ui couldn't tell you why the price is so different...

slightly?

8xxMHz is way more than any 8800 can do on air. not to mention it has alot more stream processors and memory interface

Where the **** are you seeing 800? I see 740... Which a GTX could probably do with water, Ultra should be able to do it as well..

The ati is priced so high when its performance isnt that great....also to add that they have crappy drivers.

Just go with gtx, ultra isnt needed. You could probably oc the gtx to the ultra clocks easily.

A message to nvida and ati, " If you create a product, make sure you can support it."
