    Thanks for the tip! I'm looking to build a whole new PC here soon, and I've added that to my newegg wishlist.

    PhysX isnt all that its hyped up to be

    if you followed the original single card is did nothing for almost everygame
    in ut3 I think it managed to get an extra 1 FPS

    If you have 8800GT, then the new Radeon is not worth it unless you are an enthusiast. Wait it out until at least HD 5870.

    I think if I OC my card it'll match the 4850.

    200 million transistors BAH

    I need a bigger screen... 22'' @ 1680x1050... that card is overkilling at that resolution. Even my 8800 gt is screaming for more! why are the 24'' so expensive ? Anyone made the jump? plz post comment.

    I also have a 22" LCD made by samsung, and I REALLY wanted the 1080 resolution... my GPU is also hungry for TRUE HD.
