Stuff about Dead Space, a crappy PC port -Chilly

Agreed, those minimum framerates on some games are mouth dropingly(yes I made up a word, live with it) nice.

Competition is always a great thing, price of 299? I donno, but it will drop.

Also I wouldn't count ATi out just yet, I doubt they've been just sitting on their hands doing nothing, I mean they woo'ed XFX somehow!

XFX wasn't woo'ed that was their way of telling nVidia to go **** themselves because of what happened with the Core I7 release.

Great review! I mean preview! Awesome job. Although I am gonna try to wait till DX11 to purchase a new GPU. Hopefully before tax refund the first DX11 cards come out. Oh and then buy a good 30" monitor too. Can hardly wait till tax refund!

This is very impressive!

I was considering getting 3 GTX 285s but if the pricing holds true then two of these will be cheaper.

I wonder if they will co-operate well in SLI or if it will be a mess of drivers like SLI 9800 GX2s

Now I have to decide whether to go tri-SLI or quad-SLI
