I don't know. I appreciate there being a GTX card that's under 300 dollars but I'll spend the extra $50 to get the extra functionality.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
There is a typo at the bottom of page 1:
GeForce GTX 265 has less compute power, a lower fillrate, and less
memory bandwidth than the more powerful members of the GeForce GTX 400
series, but it also requires less power and cost less. Cards from EVGA
and Zotac coming up next.
Completely not impressed. $279 dollars for this thing? I found several 5850's for $289~299 with a one minute search. Add in eyefinity and 25 idle/50 max watts less power, I don't see a reason to even consider this card when a twenty spot more will get you the mid high-end ATI card.

I have a hard time really getting excited about these cards. They are not horrible, its just that the red team came out so strong this time around.
At least Nvidia users are getting more for their money now.
Maybe they are finally figuring out that they aren't able to rape their customer base like they could two years ago.
Die hard Nvidia Fanboys sure are a funny creature! I think they are so intense because they feel they have to justify how they just spent twice as much for the same performance? It is good to see some healthy competition between the big two. I dont care what name is there, just give me performance that rocks, and is not going to be outdated two months from now.
I am sure in a few months they will be coming out with their 3D I-Nvidiaeye quadro-port cards!
