the top 30 OCN rigs are all nVidia because they've been out for so long and lots of people have them. CyberD never put himself on the list because he can't run 3DMark01 on Vista 64. if it was really that important to him, he could have the number 1 spot right now.

I cant comment on the 2900 as I have never owned any and tried them....Im a firm believer in front up or shut up as they say
don't you still have one of your Ultras getting repaired in the shop?

I'll probably try to clock the Ultra 8800 XXXs a bit more then their stock 685/2300. I'll put some results up as soon as that motherboard comes out

ASUS' EN8800ULTRA runs a little hotter than its Radeon counterpart but, crucially, thanks to an excellent heatsink design, is quieter when subject to prolonged 3D load.

if money is no object, get the Ultras. if money is an object...

Quote:
If anything the release of the Ultra and the high price take makes the HD 2900 XT look even better as it’s not much slower (especially when overclocked, not far behind at all) but so much cheaper.

You should get a blender from that "will it blend?" guy and see if it DOES blend.

EDIT: Only after using them on Suicide LN2 Runs.
