Later down the line that 10fps might be the difference between playing on medium or low settings, it might even be the difference between keeping the card for another 6 months or buying a new one.

If the 260's where cheaper than the 4870, then i would see the point.
also we dont know whats later down the line also emans we dotn know if nvidia will outperform in those games.

It's also possible nvidia could get pwned in those games. Not knowing means just that, it doesn't mean you can assume that what you want to happen will.

Agreed. We don't know what the games of the future will be like, and we have no numbers on how a 5870 actually performs, so anyone who tries to predict how it will stack up to a GTX350 and vice versa is full of ****.

^ LOL! But there is truth in what you say. perhaps there should be a rule to keep it all in the ranking thread.
