8800gts is not an ideal choice with the HD2900Pro in the picture.
the only thing, and i repeat, the only thing better about the 8800 is the user interface (NvCpl) vs. ATI's CCC.
which almost makes me want to RMA my 2900 for a 320 GTS (then im like..."i just clocked this thing to 900/1900...what am i thinking...?"). at the same time, why does ATI make their tools so awkward? maybe its just because i am used to nvidia control panel.
also for those of you hthinking of getting a pro, i have heard reports that flashing the bios to XT limits the overclock, possibly because it changes the ram timings. ie you can clock it higher with the pro bios in place. i have not tried this yet.
i flashed mine to XT and really have no need to overclock it, except for my own gratification. at stock (XT, and probably Pro as well) it plays every game i have with max settings 8xAA and 16xAF...WORD. gonna try it on COD4 and see how it hangs.
