I strongly believe that a card should not be put higher then any other card before it ACTUALLY outperforms it. I think the list should be updated or proved, but thats just me.

I think there needs to be more then a couple scenarios to justify a cards superiority over another.

well ATI is supposed to release new Catalyst Driver's soon.... we'll just have to wait and see, but i expect the XTX to be an overclocked 1gb V-RAM XT, just an opinion.....

I agree with that, and I honestly doubt that they will ever get their drivers to run that card at its full potential. ATI couldn't code their way out of a paper bag.

Woah, even right now the HD 2900xt beats the 8800gts in a lot of benchmarks.

lol, and it comes out victorious in 3dmark 06 every time, not that synthetic benchmarks weight that much.

Currently that ranking is for the HD2900XT is good since we haven't seen if they will improve the drivers any yet..

I think your missing the point I'm trying to make. I do agree that perhaps new 2900xt drivers will make it a much better card. But as of right this second, those drivers do not exist, so the card should be ranked accordingly.
