Beginning Sunday Night: GPU Review Week
Beginning Sunday night, we will have a week packed with graphics card reviews.

To kick things off, at 11:59PM EST Sunday night there will be four reviews posted simultaneously. If you are in the market for a sub-$160 card, you'll want to be around when these reviews get posted. How far BELOW $160 will these cards be priced? Well, let's just say that rumors may have placed the prices a tad high. :thumb:

Next up during the week will be Gigabyte's GTX 470 Super Overclock. Big performance on this one and some amazing power consumption numbers.

Closer to the end of the week we will have the EVGA GTX 460 1GB FTW as long as customs doesn't hold up the shipment. :ph34r:

Hope you guys look forward to next week. I know I will since it will get a ton of work off my plate in preparation for some serious testing during the latter part of the month. :thumb:

I always enjoy gpu reviews. It gives me an idea whether or not the high end cards are worth the extra expense. Lately, with the introduction of the 460, it seems a pair of high middle end cards are a much better bang for the buck.
I'm sure the reviews are excellent as always SKY!

nice, but i would still like to see more overclocked results. To me one game/bench is not enough, especially when different games respond to overclock differently.

Depending on how these cards are I could have the newest card for the builds people request at work. They don't need much but I hate giving them older cards, this could be just the ones I need.
