Question Nvidia Messed UP?

Does anyone think that Nvidia messed up on the naming of the G80 series? i mean starting with the 8800, shouldn't it have starteg with like the 8600 or lower? now it looks like its gonna take a while for G90(which it is) and the names ar problaly gonna end up stupid likee ati, im not flaming ati but i just don't like the x1900,follwed by the x1920,x1930 etc.. i hope it doesnt end up 8800GTX 8850GTX that would suck

Well, as long as the card was on-par, I really couldn't care if it was called "Nvidia and DirectX 10 Go To Vegas" or something.

Also, they can in fact go backwards with the series, like a budget 8200 [GT/LE].

we don't want to move back we want to go forward if they wanted to do that they should've made the budget cards first no snese of making 8800 then going down

^ i know but then in another post he was complaining about some of the ati names when nvidia have the same name structures

and he says they have names like x1900 elite and **** which is bs they're names are just as simple as nvidias. it doesn't take a scientist to figure it out

Who the heck cares.

I dont care if it was called the Nvidia Gefore 80. As long as it performed well I would buy it.
