    has nvidia released the new drivers for it? I read in a magazine about the current drivers having compatibility issues between the card and some games. I think they managed to test crysis and fear on it though.

    Edit: Ah, nevermind, looks like I was only reading a preview of the card, rather than an actual review :)

    Yea I also heard that about the card, but I believe that was fixed, or updated.

    So from what I have been reading they basically have just put together to 8880GTX's together into one card, with not much performance improvement. I was thinking that these cards were the next big thing, I guess I was wrong. But having SLI in one card would be nice.

    For the money they cost, I think you get much more bang-for-buck from the 9800GTX. There are few deals to be had if you look around and if you wait a month or so I'm sure the prices will drop a little.

    I went for the 9800GTX, it's so cool!

    The 9800GTX is typically the same or slower than an 8800GTX. The GX2 will therefore be the faster card.

    The 9800GTX however is supposed to be relatively cool and quiet.
