Sure a lot of the cards at 1280x1024 are different rankings than what is posted however once again once they go above and beyond the ones with more memory start to pull ahead a bit, so therefore these ranking appeal more to the people who look at them becuase there is a much more likely chance anymore for someone to have a higher resolution than the standard 1280x1024 than the outdated 1026x768 or so. Does that make sense? You should ALWAYS check benchmarks and ask questions to really figure out which car is right for you and your system and thats what I'm going to have to have added so people understand this.

This is why i dont agree with the graphics cards rankings list, it says the 8800gts 640mb is better but look at that, my system is virtually the same as his and i scored higher. Even at 3.0ghz, my score was still slightly higher. Ill be getting a better card anyways, but this proves my point.

True, im slightly biased but my understanding was that the list went by the 1280x1024 res. Ill be getting a better card anyways, most likely an 8800gts 512 (due to the better cooler) along with a phenom.

Well yes at only 1280x1024 the lower memory doesn't hurt it...but try it at 1680x1080 or 1900x1200 and see the difference on the newest games. You have to also understand 3Dmark06 is old...almost 2 years old now and those games don't nearly use as much memory as the newer games such as Crysis and CoD4

Yeah well i dont really play old games, and i play cod4 max settings at 1680x1050 no aa slider quality with an average 80-90fps. Highest i saw was 140fps, but only for a split second in singleplayer. The only old game i have on my system is css which gets 180+ fps average 1680x1050 4xaa max everything. And i know my card is still being bottlenecked, it can do much more.

You talking about me? Theres was jaggies in the first,which i stated because the slider was set to performace and no jaggies in the second. I dont know what youre talking about, all the settings were maxed out.
