I am going to say this upfront. I know nothing about testing. I was looking at the updated test at Barefeats for the 8800 card. http://barefeats.com/harper8.html I was surprised, nay shocked, to see the results at the bottom. I actually don't care so much about gaming as I do FCP and other graphics reliant apps. I agree that people shouldn't jump on this forum and say this card is now not what it was cracked up to be. Did I spend this extra money with no vastly improved results? Thanks to people who comment!
