alan.p said:I've got two Sapphire cards (an X600Pro and an X1900XT), and the only issues I've got is that they have weird looking aliens rather than sexy wimmen on their HSFs.
Plus they typically have the best prices.
I don't think they're much of a choice on the high-end cards anymore; dissapating 200+ watts of heat into the case doesn't bode well for anyone >.<Jalidi said:Need to wait and see what comes out. I'm interested in a video card which cools by venting hot air directly out the back of the case, like my Sapphire X1950 XT. If Sapphire comes out with a similiar cooling solution, I'll probably go for that.
Zinn said:what if the R600 turns out to be an overpriced turd with inferior performance, price and image quality to the 8800? I'm not saying this to flame, only to say that it's a bit ridiculous to plan purchases of products that have no confirmed specifications, results or price. I'm holding out on buying any DX10 card until I see what both sides bring to the table. But that's cuz I'm not a hapless fan boy.
