Nvidia GeForce 8800 Ultra

The war for the top spot in graphic cards isn't over yet. After rumors of ATI taking down Nvidia not materializing, Nvidia has just pulled off another 'Mike Tyson' to give ATI the final blow. Their mean GeForce 8800 Ultra is faster than the 8800 GTX.

Although nice, i'd rather get a GTS, simply because price-performance is more important than BurntAHoleInMyPocket-Performance.

Uh you would be so cpu limited that I really should take the card to save you from any grief. I am just here to help!!
I would love to have that card limited or not!! I have never in all my years owned a card that was considered the most powerful at any time.
It would be a nice change. But little tiny Tim needs an operation and of course there is food to buy. I will go and lament now...........
