Its also a shame theres no Direct X 10 tests you can download to test how good these cards would be on Direct X 10, yet of course, there can't be yet.

Even though it is a Direct X 10 card though, but will exceed at Direct X 9 games. Will it be like the early Direct X 9 cards, that when Direct X 10 games finally come out, it won't be able to run them very fast?
Nah, it will actually run direct x10 games better.
Like in Crysis, in direct x 10 mode, you get better graphics, and better framrates in direct x10 mode.

i really dont see the point in buying this card...yeah sure the specs look awesome, but thats because your used to DX9 specs, i really doubt thats "awesome" for a DX10 card its the first line of DX10 so you know its not even close to what it could be, No game will use it to 1/2 its potential, Its the only dx10 card out so there are no prices to compete with so they can get whatever they want for it, by the time vista comes out ATI's card will be out and ATI is rumored to have their card with a core clock of 1GHz or more,

there is really no point in dumping 650 bucks on a card that will drop in price by the time you will actually be using it...

Meh, I won't have a good usage for this in a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.

Even watercooled, it won't be price economic.


I do still have an FX5200.
