    LOL everyone has known about the tests comparisons for a while now..this is nothing new

    I mean look at the power consumption alone compared to the 8800GTX.. thats just crazy!
    The 8800GTX takes the win and the Ultra just leaves it in the dust.

    More expensive, uses more juice, and slighty less than the 8800GTS, ouch.

    Thank god, I was worried it would smash my 8800gts. I was forced to upgrade back in February when I was hell bent on waiting for the r600. Looks like I got the right card afterall and also have had the privilege of owning it for 4 months without the price of it dropping!

    I still don't think the 8800 will make crysis and bioshock as pretty as I want them to be.

    well the ultra is way to over priced for the performance gain over the GTX... but I've already been trying to sell it for two months now lol

    its all depending on the drivers Nvidia releases when that day comes. They leaked out a new beta set yesterday 158.42's I believe and it fixed alot of stuff..but i'm back on XP and I won't go back to Vista till Crysis comes out.
