Here's to hoping that they are pristine. I am interested to see how well SLI support will work when compared to XP. Heck, I am interested to see how these perform at ALL compared to the current ones.

Nvidia should have already had the Vista drivers ready when Microsoft released the OS.

I agree with that but i suppose it has to do something with money again... ?

Behind each and every moves those companies do there is a money question. Im sure of that.
