    why don't you just hold out for the matrox phileria 512? 20gigs of throughput, tri head gaming, and 256 megs of ddr ram, plus it should be out sooner then the g5, and should be the same price as the g4s are now.

    there probably going to run on agp8x like the matrox phileria 512 so you would have to buy a brand new mobo

    the NV30 core will be a bit more powerful then the matrox phileria 512. But matrox will have theirs out sooner. The NV30 core has the same stuff, just Nvidia makes it, and a more powerful product. ATI will compete in this too with the R 300 Core, (I think). Wait till Gf5, as of now, the gf4 was not a total failure

    the philaria will rn on agp4x, and i think its also got a high ramdac for each monitor, not shared like the g series, it think its something like 400mhz on each.. unlike the g3ti500s 240...
