Introduction and 8800 GTX Review
We finally had a pair of GeForce 8800 GTX cards sitting here long enough to get some SLI testing done; and we think you'll be impressed by the results!

EVGA's 7950 GX2 really impressed HotHardware. It started out tying and sometimes even beating a pair of 7900 GTs, but when they got a 15% overclock on the core and ~25% on the memory all bets were off.
PureVideo HD Introduction
NVIDIA's PureVideo HD technology attempts to take most of the guess work out of building an HD-DVD and Blu-ray ready system for your home theater or desktop, while offering great playback performance as well.

MadShrimps have lined up offerings from ASUS, Sparkle and EVGA. If you are looking at a 7950 series, you may like EVGA's higher clock speeds.

There's a brand new RivaTuner at Guru of 3D. If you have never used this tool, you should at least try it out, and if you are a fan, you've probably been holdign your breath for 97.xx and 6.11 support.

Tweaktown has had problems this week, in specific a waterpump stopped and the GPU on a 7900GS got hot enough to melt the fasteners keeping it's waterblock on. On further examination it could have been worse, but they feel it might be a good idea to restore thermal management at the driver level, as a BSOD is probably better than a visit from the fire department.

The X1600 didn't match up to the nVidia 7600GT very favourably. HIS took the already increased GPU speed and pushed it up even further. HotHardware puts it onto the test bench to find out if they have managed to unseat nVidia's current best value card.

The X1650XT sounds good, at a suggested price of $149 and performance to equal the 7600GT. As [H]ard|OCP discovered though, it is very hard to find one of these cards for sale, and if you do manage to get one, then you will be paying more than $150.
