All this will end up by that a 8800 will be minimum to play a game in the future (3 months+). The companys just what to make insane graphics but they dosent bother about the actuall gameplay.
Who can do the nicest game? <----- Thats the fight about right now.
Next generation graphic is just to good for the curret generation gpus.
ATi owned DX9
Nvidia will own DX10
The market is a beautiful thing.
Safe to say I made a good purchase of my 8800GTSl.
