5850 is the 4th fastest video card today and is an absolute beast

4th fastest card but the 2nd fastest SINGLE gpu card on the planet. I am just waiting for NVidia to come out with their beast called FERMI. I want to get it but I think the prices of those cards will be horribly north of $400! Their mareting and overpricing is starting to get annoying! I still cant believe I actually bought this 5850 but I am enjoying it. I wonder how many ppl like me did so after having Geforce cards. Nvidia did have better drivers and PhysX is still better!

Its crazy how the 5850 and 5870's time advantage AND its quality has taken AMD/ATi to the next level AND lends them a significant advantage in the GPU market. I mean when Nvidia comes out with FERMI or their GT100 series, they will have better tech BUT Ati will then build on that PLUS their next gen GPU by then, Thus leaving Ati already ONE STEP AHEAD and on Gen ahead of Nvidia in the GPU race for the top sales and tech.....
