But seriously guys... Think about it, how many of you have LCD Monitors over 1280x1024, or for that matter, play games at any resolution above 1280x1024. At this time right now, unless ALL of you guys are specifically getting these cards to benchmark, there's really no reason in getting a $600 dollar card. I mean, all of you know that you can run just about any game out with 1280x1024 with everything on high (maybe not F.E.A.R.) and still get very good fps without any drop or anything. I mean, if you honestly play games at 1600x1200 then more power to you, but chances are if you want a good display, you're going to have to spend another $500-700 on a 20.1"+ LCD display.
And then so the system wont bottle neck you'll need a dual core processor running at least $800 (X2 4800+), and the main thing to think about here is the fact that nobody really NEEDS that much power, I mean of course this is coming from a guy with a 5700LE (2 Generations behind), and a 3200+ Winchester, so I can't really determine for SURE that nobody needs it, but chances are people are going overboard.
Get the 7900GT, if you are a gamer, get the 7900GTX or X1800XTX if you want to benchmark. Or you have the ULTIMATE GAMING MACHINE 8,000,000,0000,0,0,0,00,0,0,0,00,00,00,000...
