yeah....i'd laugh if some n00b started to try to break the 3dmark world record... first day he'd set his stuff all up...like $4000 worth of parts, then dumps a gallon of liquid nitrogen directly on all of it XD ...then he wonders what went wrong...

yeah...but i'd still keep my 2900 xt, it performs close enough to the gtx, just some AA problems need to be fixed in the few next drivers
