Good review mate, have to agree about the single slot cooler, would have been a great card for a media center if you wanted to do a bit of gaming as well

This doesn't have a single slot cooler - just one of my critcisms. Great card all the same though and I agree about the 8800GT comment.

Pretty much a carbon copy of the ASUS variant in terms of performance.

How much in terms of quality settings, can these cards achieve these days ? in comparison to perhaps a 8800gt ?

My apologies. Misread one of the above posts and had only really looked at the performance figures. Just read the review fully now.

Quality is not too bad, resolutions seemed to have a bigger effect (2560x1600 is pain full to watch at times). For your average gamer though they are not half bad at all.

Sorry m8, I meant like how far the typical new amd card can throw up AA settings and the other Q within games.

(in comparison to the 8800gt if u like)

Well I don't have an 8800GT to hand m8 so I can't really compare directly I'm afraid. I may just have a 1GHz version coming soon though, so if you want me to try your preference of res/AA setting gimme a shout.
