Neverwinter Nights 2, Gothic 3, even parts of Dark Messiah could really use some more horsepower, either from a current SLI/CF setup or from some of the G80 singles.I'm obviously no non-enthusiast, but what the heck are you guys buying the card for (other than benchmarking)? I mean what SINGLE good game is coming out before r600 and a G80 refresh that is going to make this card useful??
True, from a simple performance aspect it isn't worth the price over some 79** SLI or X19k CF, but it's the different feature-sets and DX10 compatibility that give you more than the current dual-GPU solutions give.Hmm. 50-70% faster than 7900GTX at 1920x1200?? So really it's like SLI'd 7900GTX with a few more features. With a pair of 7900GTX's or X1900XT's being cheaper than the initial 8800GTX offerings, I don't see a whole lot of reason to upgrade from a performance aspect.
I'm mainly interested in their AF department.
