It would be much better, when games start to Utilize 4 cores.

alright, well, another question has popped into my head... Would it be worth it to buy a Radeon HD 2900XT over a nvidia card of the same price? The specs look pretty **** amazing

Radeon HD 2900XT performs faster than 8800GTS, but slower than 8800GTX. It consume more power than both and produce a lot of noise

Don't be fooled by the spec, ATI has more stream processors, but 8800 series have more Texture mapping units and Render Output Pipelines
