gaming hardware as officially surpassed the need of todays games. Until crysis, 8800gtx and g80 sli will be overkill.
Actually, I read an article today where they cranked Oblivion all the way up and brought the 8800 to its knees.

glad they are finally here, but history shows that the first generation of video cards for a given dx mode are weak, like fx series for example, we don't even know how well this will run dx10.

ya know...yesterday I was feeling pretty good about my pc...then G80 came out and it is all fancy and owning my system by a factor of 3. I wish I could sell my pc in all its glory and buy that $2000 build I sketched out. DX10...*sigh*
