it ranks as the number 4 most powerful card right now. looks like a very impressive buy for only $170, given that the DX10 doesnt look that much better than DX9 right now( bioshock, crysis, and oblivion all look amazing in DX9) i think im going to purchase one then just wait until next years 8900 series cards come out. looks like a geat buy right now.
"The first Direct X 10 video cards on the market were those using the GeForce 8800 chipset from Nvidia. Currently the fastest cards you can buy, the 8800 GTX packs 768 MB of GDDR3 and has a core clock speed of 575 MHz. A single 8800 GTX typically outperforms even systems with dual GeForce 7 GPUs, so, aside from the incredibly expensive 8800 Ultra, it's the best gaming card money can buy right now. Of course, your wallet will take a sizeable hit."
That's under the product disclaimer page. In other words, they don't really ensure that the info they post is accurate. They take stuff from other sites and repost it and never really site their sources. A little sketchy huh?
