then the 9800GX2 would be ideal if you can afford it. Or you can just wait for the gt200 and R700 to come out.

Cranked settings I can make NWN2 chug on my rig at 1280x1024.

Oblivion can do the same during busy spots after I use all the enhanced texture mods, at 1280x1024.

theres no hope of me running them maxed out like that at 1900x1200.

yes I am I really hope they perform. I am just tired of seeing these nvidia cards with 600 price tags. I would suggest a 8800gts g92 to anyone, so I am no fanboy, I just see no reason to get a gx2, unless you are a 3dmark guru. come on 4xxx!!! (they better do well...)

PM me that link when you do get it, or anyone else who has release dates and such (expected at least) for all the cards.
