You guys really have me pumped up about this card......now i can't wait to get it!

I am thinking that the 9800GTX that I am giving my son should max out MOST games at 1280x1024....plus alittle AA with that......he will be sooooo stoked!

He is currently using an ATI X1900XT.....and it has been one heckuva video card....it is the ASUS brand.
