It's like: you're comparing the 2900xt with the gtx or ultra
No, it's not. I'm comparing it to it to the 8800GTS 320MB. The figures I have are both legitimate and equate to the real life.

You argued that the best value was the 2900XT, and I proved it's not. The best value, as in comparing the price you are paying to the performance you receive lies in the 8800GTS 320MB.

If you want to compare them to the GTX or Ultra, go ahead. I made an argument and stand by it. It is completely valid and apt to this discussion.

EDIT: I do know what you're saying. If you are talking in the 375-425 dollar range then yes, the 2900XT might be a better choice, but I still say buying the GTS is a better option.

Just wait for the X2900XT for price drops, like when the 8800 GTS was release it was around 500 bucks and now it is around 300 bucks.
