It does look great, but isn't it DX10 ?
I dunno if any of the current cards will give pic quality like that.....:(

If they make it, with FarCry gameplay and those GFX :drool:

Worth (yet) another GFX card upgrade IMO

if people would ever listen to me they could save a pile of $$ on graphics cards and still play new games. I went from $200 X800GTO2 that OCed to a X850XTPE to a $200 X1800XL 512mb that with a bios ulock turns into a X1800XT 512mb.... and my old card is still worth ~$100.... I will do the same thing when DX10 cards, and more importantly games hit the market. i get high end gameing for ~100-200 a year, no need to spend 500-1000 on SLI crossfire.

I'll be getting FZ1's Opty soon......the "spare" rig will be based around this 4400......i might even get another hi-end board for it..........When DX10 matures I can sell the "spare" along with this x1900 for plenty of $$ and get some sweet gfx........
I know i loose money, but this is how i work :rolleyes:
I've always got to have the next best thing (enter conroe)
Heck I'm still young & single.......I may aswell spend my $ now while I still can :)

FZ1 did ask a good question!

Too bad to get it looking that could you need DX10 as I think it is.

Which means you need Vista, and a beast of a machine.

I won't be upgrading until Q2 or Q3 of next year or whenever the first Vista SP is out.

This is about the same as those guys who open the latest issue of their favorite hot rod magazine and start drooling over the photos of the 2009 Camaro concept car. (like me)

it's easy to forget that you really won't be able to get your hands on this for quite some time.

So I wouldn't get too worked up just yet boys......

Anyone else think it will look quite differently by the time it's released? Like Oblivion for instance. While still crazy-beautiful, pretty far down from the 2005/early 06 hype photos.

I'm planning on it, going to need the time to get the cash aside for a rig that will play it with all the eye candy :)
