Great right up. Shame about the temp and noise however Zalman will hopefully come to the rescue on that one. Going to have to wait for AMDs reply until I decide whether to invest though.
I haven't run 3Dmark06 lately so maybe the new drivers are a factor, but the overall score that the GT puts up is almost exactly the same as my ultra... am I missing something???
I couldn't help but say WTF to myself when I saw the score!!!

It must be the drivers because everything else is =.
I'll try later and see/post what I get.

I overlooked the fact that a quad core CPU was used in testing. My score with GFX @ stock is 12,465. While I find the 8800's to be very good cards, I have every intention of upgrading to Nvidias next flagship so I can run Crysis faster. Quite frankly I am disappointed with the framerate my card puts out in Crysis at high settings, but thankfully anticipated such circumstances and put $$$ aside for the next card.
hows it run crysis?
jump ship on my gtx and sli two of them bad boys...

Meister, the Nvidia 9800 series are supposed to be announced around the middle of November so it might be worth bit of a wait on that one.
I have read the review that Hot Hardware did on the 8800GT and was wondering how you benchmarked Crysis? Did you use the Crysis Benchmark Tool?
