or a heavily OCed G92 8800GTS for $300 (I've seen some at $250 from Galaxy) and if you're playing at non-ultra high resolutions.

Go look at the 3DMark06 thread and the Crysis benchmark thread, mgcook's OC'd Ultra and my OC'd GTS are almost neck-and-neck and we pretty much have identical specs.

^ that still doesnt do me any good since i already have an ultra, and i'm not happy with it. So an equal card is useless.

by they I meant nvidia as i'd much rather not deal with ati. I'm not sayign anythings wrong with them, the 3870 is as great card. just personal preference. and if it's a x2 card we're gonna talk about I may as well wait for the gx2.

i was just under the impression the gx2 was some half***ed last ditch effort at making money and the gtx was gonna be better. that's what i get for being Optimistic huh? XD

Caught that too. They circle what they want you to see, hoping you won't even bother to decipher the chinese. But, it says 8800GTS, BS.

i think that nvidia won't be goin' for a large performance increase, rather they'll be goin' for a larger price drop. cause they showed with the 9600gt that they are goin' for value, they increase the performance a little and lower the price, so they'll probably keep this with the rest of the series. so even if it's only a little bit more performance, if the price is less i'm happy, since i don't have a lot of money to though on upgrades.

could be an engineering sample, I remember there were some Phenoms that read up as Opterons...

would make sense seeing as it supposedly shares the same core as well as the fact that gpu-z needs to be updated for support for newer gfx cards
