Last time I looked they didn't even have the 8800GTS (G92) on the charts.
Yeah I had to do my own investigating for this before I bought mine. I don't think the chart is very valid anymore because there are several old games and no new one there. I like to see the benches of new games that I currently play. So the general article benches work better for me.
The 3850 comes in just under the 3870 though. Don't even look at the 256 versions.

Toms charts are slackin big time. I think they are forgetting what made them a popular website and are giving into the mainstream. They are gonna lose their regulars soon. I actually rarely come here as much myself anymore.
I think they need to overhaul that chart for current games and cards. That is a big undertaking though i would think. Maybe they will get to it when new hardware launches calm down... HAHA! which is never.
Oh man, I was going to ask if you play at low res cause I'd give you a get outta jail free card then. You bought it like day #1 didn't you? $170 is a lot.
No I didn't buy it on day one......... It was only after I bought it how important I realized more vid ram is at higher res's. But it does what I need fine for now. This also is my Mom's computer now, and it's not like she's a gamer I'm waiting to build a new computer till I have a job and when I need a new computer.
