I'm not

Yes it's the fastest single card currently but tbh it's not anything particularly special

My 8800 GTX stays put

For a single GPU it does perform very well @ 1900 x 1024. I also like the cooling as it takes the hot air out of the PC.

Excellent review as always.

If I win the lottery any time soon then I may buy one.

A bit dissapointing methinks ! After all the hype and the fact that its more expensive than the Gx2 you'd think it would be way ahead in those games !

Looking at the 3Dmark vantage result, i wonder if it will do better for future games, rather than current ones.

Thats what I was wondering. I really wish I still had the 9800GX2 to see what result that got.

Its a good point but if you bought this card with an eye to the future you would possibly be dissapointed because there was newer faster cards available then, depends if you're a serial upgrader i suppose !?
