Default This guy is whack

Newegg.com - MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
read the first review...
i highly doubt this is true and that the guy builds 15-20 comps a week

lol at trusting newegg reviews. but, this review is by far not the most ridiculous that i have read from there. grain of salt, man...grain of salt.
i'd like to see his 3dm06 score of 21K, then i'll believe him.
if two of those cards score 21k, then two 8800gtx's would score, what? like 35K? and they dont, so i have a wee problem buying that load. but, it is newegg.
8600gts' are supposed to be pretty good cards, better than a 7900gs. i bet it wouldnt beat a 7900gto, though. yoikes.

my bad 3dm05 that is correct.
that card is a little better than mine. my sli 7900gs' will score pretty evenly, if not a bit better than an 8800gts 320 at 1280x1024.
2 of those in sli may score close to the gtx, or even a little higher...but i highly doubt that it outscores it by that much. really.

lol what a moron.

He says 2 8600GTS's in SLI are better than a single 8800GTX?! LOL!

A pair of 8600GTS's are roughly equivalent to a x1950xtx or midly oc'd 7900GTX

8600GTS-SLI versus 8800GTS

Everything you need to know....right there (unless you believe that the 88GTX is not more powerful than an 88GTS....because this article doesnt feature the GTX, which beats an 88GTS, which beats 2x 86GTS)
