The transition of 8800GT to what a 9900GTX (GT280 - whatever) is presuming to be, seems
a fair upgrade.
8800GTX to 9800GTX possibly is too.. possibly.
Looking back at the massive pricing of the original 8800GTX/Ultras, suddenly doesn`t seem that expensive when we look at how long they`ve remained up-there-with-the-big-boys. Be close to 2/3 years u could have bought one and not ~really~ had scope to complain about performance.
24" widescreen monitors are the place to be. I`m looking at a 22" in comparison to my 20" and it`s shocking - even tho I still think my 20" looks great.
Seems as tho maybe esthetics/quality are taking over from mere `performance`. I don`t think that`s wholey a bad thing.
