and you didn't know you pay MSRP, i thought you knew that already...

but 2900pro is better... but it might struggle in Anti-Aliasing type things like the 2900xt... some1 confirm this...

I knew that the card you wanted you pay the MSRP, but I thought you subtracted your cards MSRP not the retail value you bought it for lol.

Is it possible that the 8800GT wel be less than 200, and be comparable to 8800GTS and 2900pro?

Get a 2900PRO and flash/overclock to XT speeds, and be happy with the purchase

I dont see how this card performs not as well sometimes with 512 of DDR4, and 320 stream processors.

What about x1950pro, it's cheaper but mostly outruns 8600gts. Well, x1950pro has no dx10 but works better with dx9.

didn't they fix that with drivers? or does that have nothing to do with drivers?

[3/5] Wydajno∂ś :: PCLab.pl

i have never actually used these AF and AA, do they make a big difference?
