both video cards on the GTX295 have to have the same data on both cards when SLI is on (GTX295 is 2 video cards) even when SLI is off the total usable ram per card is 1gb

I love the power consumption but the thing's way too big, I think 9" should be plenty personally. I can't wait to see what the 5700 series of cards will be like, no FX dust-busters I hope LOL!
perfectly true here what austin said it is working on supersampled AA like i said i like what i'me seeing but it's expensive
but lenght any midtower en several mini T fit these cards i'me just glad that they putted the power supply on the sides this time much easier than the 4800 series witch made it difficult with the hdd

Remember when ATI brought out the 2000 series? In the hope of capturing the DX10 market? We all jumped on the bandwagon, and snapped them up, and we were punished most severely. The HD2000 series could not cope with DX10 amid all the hype, I upgraded for Cysis :( :( !!!!.
Remember that the 5000 series is supposed to be for the DX11 era, forget previous DX9 DX 10/10.1.
I personally will wait this one out purely from past experience, as I have a sneak suspicion that the 5000 series will render previous DX fine but fall short when dx11 hits the streets
( Aliens v Predator is DX11),. I suspect Nvidia are waiting on this very scenario, and come 2010 DX 11 will be firmly in Nvidia's hands.
I hope I'm wrong!
I have mixed feelings with regards to the test, I feel a true benchmark test would have been
!!Crysis on Very High settings!!
Articles like this often make me wonder... Just what the HELL were the developers testing Crysis on when it first came out? 8x 8800 GTX and fifty quad cpu's? I mean surely they maxXXed it out before release with a solid minimum frame rate? ( I suspect they sent over to NASA... it's a royal con! )
Interesting.. However going off the review and where I am now, I must admit I feel that a 5850 or 5870 would be great for me, simply because I do not have a HUUAAGGEE monitor ( 22 inch 1680 by 1050 ) so I have no Hi def ( damn ) I am also concerned about physX, as we all know Nvidia acquired Ageia some time ago, interestingly Nvidia cards also run Havoc!, so does it makes sense to go with Nvidia? I mean the GTX 300 will support dx11,physX and Havoc.
However with tessellation and stream capability I am unsure. I will be holding off until the new year, and fighting temptation furiously! ( I owe the missus 600 squid!!!) it's also funny how console owners still try and compete with us PC owners, I mean the GPU card alone costs more that a console!!! no contest.
The future for PC gaming is bright, let's keep it alive!!
