Looks nice...I'm gonna start saving my money. You forgot the best part though! 128 pixel pipelines for the GTX, and 96 for the GTS, and pixel shader 4.0. That's just crazy.

But to have DX10 and those cards, you need Vista supposedly. It won't work with XP, I think.

No, it will work for XP/DirectX 10, but it'll be like buying a Lamborghini and only driving it to the grocery store. Basically, DirectX 9 won't let it reach it's potential, but it will work. You'll need DirectX 10 to make it worth the money though (then you're Lamborghini is on the Audubon).

I agree. Microsoft isn't getting anymore of my money regarding vista or any of that. My next move is probably mac, or I'll ride the XP wave until it's dead like windows 98 or ME.

I've sort of drifted from the gaming scene lately and in a way I am happy because otherwise i would be saving every last penny i've got so i could buy one of these. Looks like it's just me and my 6600GT for a little while yet.
