I've been waiting for Robbie the Robot since 1955! Sorry I grow bitter when I see how much better others have done!

1280x1024 no AA or AF, but it averages 50 fps.

So I was pretty happy with that.

You want Robby the Robot in a game? :\

Isaac Asimov's stupid rules make Robby a boring kettle with a vacume tube on his head, not a marketable product. Now, if he killed people, or created genetically modified freaky monkeys on a deserted island, while using mercs to kidnap a reporter... that would be marketable.

Its Robby's boringness that relegates him to Star Trek cons and Sci-Fi parties.

I wouldnt. If you are buying a new video card right now, the best price performance card on the market, R520 or not, is the Leadtek 6800LE. If your card is worse than an FX5900, or a 9800 Pro, its worth upgrading.

I am more inclined to see the vista launch, and see how close the R520 and NV40 / G70s come to compliance. Then, I would still hold off and get the next gen card, probably the Geforce 8.

GF8 has been in development for a long time now, and isnt extremely far off. Shader Model 4.0 sounds very tempting, and of course it will be 100% vista proof.
