Then it looks like nVidia is the submissive businessman that pays a truck load of money just to get whipped and beaten 'cause that's how I see this round going.

15,194 is not bad for a mid-range card I guess. Although I'd hope that it would come at a little nicer price. Then again, comparing it to the current nvidia midrange (the 9600GT) this is a massive improvement.

I'm just happy that ATi has finally gotten in a hard body shot at nVidia. It was shakey for a while since ATi has been on the ropes for quite some time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, more competition means that we as consumers benefit.
Actually, only the HD2900 series wasn't that good, and that was fixed with the HD38x0 series, x1950's were great, and the x800's only lost due to lack of SM3, and we all know about the 9xx0 Radeon's.

This card = Mine, Cheap + about GTX fast ftw!

I've always liked PowerColor above all the other ATI vendors... I've never bought from them... They just sound cooler... well not really, but still, AWESOME

I'm not quite sure why PowerColor sounds better to you but I have yet to hear anything negative about them as far as quality goes. PowerColor...I should start my own company named StrongSound but the Homestar Runner folks would be knocking on my door.

The -only- think that has me dipping my toes in the ATi water to test out the temperature rather than diving straight in is the warranty. I've been spoiled with XFX's all encompassing warranty that none of ATi's partners have bothered to touch. VisionTek maybe but their support is terrible according to what I've read.

Powercolor is generally okay in the quality stakes but the cooler on this card looks terrible. I remember the cooler on my Powercolor X1950Pro was an absolute beast...in fact, that whole card was a beast.

Not too impressed with this score from an upgrade point of view so might as well go SLI I guess.

Keep in mind that even with early drivers this is a great card when you consider price versus performance. If the initial "benchmarks" are any indication this thing can hold it's own with nVidia's latest offering although it's too early to tell and I use the term benchmarks very lightly at this stage of the game.

I'm almost considering putting my foot down when tax season rolls around and doing a Crossfire upgrade with two of these. By then the price will have dropped quite a bit.
