Good. Nvidia have it coming to them... for a short while at least.

Had known a release of updated Radeon 9700 cards with higher clockspeeds was imminent. Ahead of the Inquirer for a change... interesting to see most profit is made in the lower price bracket though.

I also felt the Geforce FX is a bit of a disappointment, a bit gimmicky, they are comparing it to an older card (voodoo something or other I think) that flopped through too radical and unpopular a design change.

The new Nvidia card's biggest failing to me, is not its lower than expected performance, but it's power requirements, noise level, as well as issue heat and that spare PCI slot. They seem to have gone a little mad, Nvidia and no fairies are going to put those problems just identified right.

Good luck ATi. Wish they'd get into a mor effective price war though (grin). Could do with shaving a few hundred pounds of the price!

Lol. That opening quotation I've seen elsewhere also - it's a classic line. Well spotted, Big Damo.
