I go for the best value...nothing more.
I am not a fan boy...the only true fan boys are the people who call others fanboys
Show me one review and I'll point out the problems with it. I have yet to see an honest one
...and forget the 640MB GTS...personaly I think its crazy to get one of those over a GTX. Wait till your next paycheck and spend a $120 more.
Compare the 320...as that is going to be the real competition for the HD2900 until games start needing more memory. But I highly doubt that will happen with in the next year. And the way it is looking there maybe 8800GTS that will be aproaching the $200 mark after a rebate. I don't know if the 2900's can be cut that low.
Drop the DX10 crap too...none of these 8800 or 2900 will be all that great at DX10 and that is not going off those stupid patches. There are DX10 demos that are nothing more than pre-rendered slide shows and none of the cards did very good in them fps wise...people put faith in 3DMark06, these demos are about the same thing. Though I haven't seen a test done with the 1GB version of the HD2900XT...and after closer examination this test was done with a 512MB version. That there makes me want to through this out the window*edit* I see now that it was just the OP's mistake on what version of 2900 was being tested. It's cool...I've made that mistake before too.
