    Possibly, but the number of DX10 games coming is still limited, and we've no idea on DX10 performance yet (the 8800s could yet turn out to be for DX10 what the 5700 was for DX9... ie completely useless).

    It's some very, very serious performance compared to either 8800GTS, and much better value than the 8800GTX, even if it is using Crossfire.

    Now no one needs to be reminded how lousy the FX series was in DX9...

    I doubt 8800 would be such a flop.. but still this is serious value if it just kicks in a tad lower into the £180 mark..

    Say, Where's my 5600Ultra I paid my pants out for..
    Me want Ultrabook

    Not bad at all - I'm surprised how effective it turned out, and *if* it's at the 200 pound mark, it's priced very well.

    Of course the real winner is the expertise gained, possibly allowing more dual cards in the future.

    It would have been intersting to see how it lined up with the 7950GX2 just as an interesting comparison between similar prospects from both companies.

    That thing's huge! Pretty decent as well though I'd imagine it will not sell that well considering R600 series et al should be here in a month or so.

    Sure, you'd have to put it in the cargo bay via the bay doors, but it should just about squeeze in
