I sort of know what you feel, but I'm just going to bite the bullet and get a 8800 GTX, still is going to be a powerful card, and like every other card release, the power is way over hyped and more times than not and it isn't as "sick" as it was hyped. Just like the R600 and G71, especially the G71.

I'm sick of waiting and I've other stuff to spend my money on, why worry about DX10 if you don't even have Vista (and even if DX10 comes to XP it won't be until a while).

Very true. Vista has been out for how many months now?? And was still don't know how long till the first full fledged dx10 game (crysis i guess, at least 3 months away).

Get it man, i doubt you would regret it. They are good cards and i dont think there is a game out that it will struggle with (compared to when oblivion came out...).

the ultra's come with the higher shaders clocks though... and from what i can see in some games, when both are at stock, that makes the difference of a 30-40% increase in frame rate. and yeah you can oc an 8800gtx to ultra speeds but the ultra can be oc'd really far as well.

Quick question, slightly off topic, lol, but all the stuff that they have been showing us of Crysis, did they release the comp spec they were using?
I'm wondering if my rig will be able to run it as well as what they are.

E6600, currently stock, but can OC to 3ghz easy
XFX 8800GTX (too scared to OC this)
2GB A-DATA PC6400 Ram
Shiny Black case.

Yeah... I will poo myself when crysis comes out, it looks so **** good, just hoping that he aint using like extreme quad core and like, 8 million 8800GTXs hooked up together to render each tree.

Cheers,
Sydz

i dont think you could expect highest settings at anything higher than 1680x1050, but i think it'll run it just fine.

what kind of screen do you have?

well then yeah you should have no worries at all.

thats sweet f2b i sure hope so because im saving up for an g92 but if i don't need it i will gladly save the money on an 8800gts if it'll handle crysis lol. bout time they started coding games right and getting dx10 to do what it was intended to do.

I don't really care if Crysis brings a 8800GTX to it's knees (which I don't think will happen, unless it's a high resolution), because the graphics would still be kick *** no matter what.

That's like not winning the grand prize of 1 million dollars but instead 2nd prize of 500,000 dollars.

500,000 dollars is still 500,000 dollars!
