lol better means more expensive people who wait to buy a new dx10 card will be looking at proably round a grand for a single card besides 2 7600gt's will get you through till 2009 if you a moderate gamer. just because the games have engines that use dx10 dosent mean that you cant run them in dx9 with lower performance. also dont you need vista to use dx10
The max core for mine seems to be 607 any higher and i see artifacts, as for memory got it up to 815 but pc seemed unstable so i guess ive reached the max for my card! And i was thinking about an 8800GTX but not for a long time until dx10 games come out, and they become more affordable.
