I was wondering the same seems the cool thing to do these days is to rip off the competetors flagship naming scheme and give it to a watered down version of your flagship card for marketing purposes

Man, AGP 6800GTs are really getting expensive because they are trying to discourage them....once again because you can't SLI them. Whether we want to accept it or not, SLI is the future....we will all eventually have to have it at the rate the video card manufacturers are forcing it upon us.

Yes, those asshats. Ahh I want a 7 series card so bad, but I can't afford switching to 64bit, s939, SLI, PCI-E and whatever **** thing they are offering at once.

They should have at least had a transition generation....being that the 6800 series is native AGP...the 7 series should be AGP also, and then they should kill it off 8 series. Because by the time of the 8 series, any computer still on AGP will be reaching the end of its life, and will need to be replaced. Its not that way now..they just are doing this because they are so greedy they don't want people to not to have the option of SLI, because if they have that option, they will make more money because people will likely do it.
