^timings, i don't really get what the point is in getting ram that your going to have to tighten the timings on and then the speed increase you get by getting the higher mhz ram is bearly noticable. Why would you not just get 800mhz ram instead and tighten the timings really low and the speed increase would be more noticable. (this is all of what i have heard, not done)

timings do not affect current intel cpus as much as overall bandwidth does. 1000 mhz 5,5,5,15 is not bad at all.

i couldnt agree more, first thing i thought was 4850. its the best price/perf card. 8800gt is gettin old.

4850 performs just under a 9800gtx if memory serves me correctly, but for the price the 4850 is alot better. (in Australia i think in usa prices are similar so either is good, maybe nvidia since better support)

the 4850 performs just over the 9800gtx actually especially when you start heaping on AA and AF.

same with the 9800gtx+, but it might have to do with the lame Beta drivers most people tested with
