    it was posted by a fan of nvidia... I suppose the gpu they used it on might have been something related to the nv30...

    Well, I've never had any problems with my 8500, but a lot of people have. On the other hand, ATi has been releasing drivers much more frequently this year, and no seems to be complaining anymore ... :D

    As for the 9700 - all I have to say is wow!! I will be ordering one the day they're available, of course the price will drop pretty soon thereafter but for the first time, the performance increase over the current generation of cards totally justifies the expense (IMHO). Of course, the NV30 should rock too, but I'm not willing to wait until ... well, who knows when.

    :)

    You've got a good point about game developers actually using the features of the card - by the time developers use any of the DX9 features that both of the cards will have, there will be a whole new generation of cards to choose from! At which point, it follows, any comparison between the (then) aging R300 and the NV30 will be moot ...
