    looks like i won't be getting my rd600 after all. i was so looking forward to that board. well, looks as nVidia has cum up with their own "rd600". well, it's version to compete that is. yep, i'm talking about the 600i series chipsets. they will cum in 3 flavors for intel. 680i SLi, 650i SLi, & 650i Ultra (600a series for amd). as of now i believe i'll probably be getting the 680i version. i always purchase the best mb that's available. then u have the new dx10 version videocards from nVidia also. these two G80 cards (only two available on launch) are being named 8800 GTX (flagship) and the 8800 GTS. lots of new and great stuff cummin' from our friendly nVidia personnel in the future! sad times to amd/ati's newest x1950xtx cards too as this 8800 GTX completely dominates it in a single card solution compared to the x1950xtx in crossfire! u make the call. all of this should be available for purchase within the next week or two. get urs!?

    8800 series specs

    Dominating 8800 vs x1950xtx Benches

    the 600i series chipset mb's are core 2 duo and core 2 quad compatible and support the new 1333 MHz fsb and is aimed for the oc'er enthusiast. the 8800 series vid crds are 768mb & 640mb cards, support m$'s newest dx version 10, shader model 4.0 and crush every board out there especially in SLi mode where it really shines! look at those 2048 x 1536 rez benches! impressive & sold! just make sure u have a very good psu for these 8800 series cards. 450w psu for single solution and 800w for SLi. lol, time for that 1k watt pc power and cooling psu!

    No, Oblivion still bring even two 8800GTX in SLI to their knees on maxed settings and high resolution.

    "As you can see in the table with the 8800 GTX the highest playable setting that struck a balance of image quality and performance was a very high 1600x1200 with 8X AA (which is the CSAA mode since it is turned on in the control panel), and 16X AF with the absolutely highest in-game settings possible. The in-game settings literally do not go any higher; this is as good as the game gets visually. We were pulling an average in our test of 48 FPS, and a minimum in the lower 30’s, all very playable at such high settings."

    This card is pretty fricking sweet. Even the GTS can play it maxed out.
