I think the last nvidia cards to blow hot air out of the case is what I have now.

Bandwidth means almost nothing when comparing two video cards or two processors. Nvidia cards tend to do A LOT more work per cycle and have much better game support, can handle AA/AF better, etc.....
Which is the main reason why GT280 is clocked at only 600mhz on the core yet it will smoke the HD4870. It's like comparing K8's bandwidth to the old Pentium 4 architecture. Besides, I know I would rather have fast GDDR3 with a 512bit bus with 1GB of VRAM that inst limited by a 256bit bus than expensive GDDR5 with a limiting 256bit bus and only 512MB of VRAM.

wait - which 3dmark are you talking about? 3DMark06 isn't even a game first off, hell neither is Vantage. How can you say 3DMark isn't optimized lol.

Crysis isn't a game either for most of the people on here, you can tell 3dmark06 is unoptimized by looking at its graphics and comparing that to the framerate that you are getting. It has has weird pre internal set cpu scaling (maybe Intel paid for that?) that no pc games out there have. I mean when I look at 3dmark06 the graphics don't even look as good as the source engine yet I might get maybe 25fps on average. Which is why it is unoptimized.......

Depends on what the Source engine has pre-rendered vs. on the fly. I don't know the answer here, since I've never played a source game, nor have I looked into exactly how much work 3dmark does, but I'd assume, that most things are rendered on the fly since it is a benchmark.

The 256-bit bus does not limit bandwidth on the 4800's, the speed of the GDDR5 makes up for it. The difference in bandwidth between RV770 and GT200 is less than 17GB/s. If the bandwidth bottlenecks RV770, then GT200 is in a lot of trouble because it doesn't have a whole lot more.

Yea but you are also forgetting that the HD4870 is limited to only 512MB of effective VRAM due to the 256bit bus. The GT280 can handle up to 1GB of effective VRAM since it has a 512bit bus.
