The amount of changes and improvements in this card can't really be described quickly, there are so many. The bottom line is simply this ... the only thing that can touch the 8800 is a pair of X1950XTX's in Crossfire, nothing else can come close to this cards overall performance. The Tech Zone is more than willing to tell you how nVIDIA accomplished this feat.

While doing some more game testing for an upcoming review, I came upon an issue that seemed quite confusing. While playing Prey, the new Doom 3 engine game from HumanHead Software and 3D Realms, I noticed that in at least one case, the X1950 XTX card I was using scored the same when set at 2xAA and at 4xAA. Looking back at my review of the X1950 XTX card, specifically the Prey gaming section, I did not test the non-AA or lower-AA setti

With a little bargain hunting, the 3 cards that t-break benchmarks are all within shouting distance of $200. None of them will be breaking records, but they are up to date, and all 3 sport Dual-DVI for larger LCD screens. You could also think about SLI/Crossfire.
