NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Models

Nvidia announced that their 6800 models of video cards have been widely accepted today. I really can’t say I’m surprised. Pretty impressive reviews.

I haven’t been much of a Nvidia fan as of late. Mainly because I experienced a lot of driver issues with my last Geforce card (Those last detonator drivers really sucked for me) and after purchasing the Geforce 4600 for Shane – I didn’t notice nearly half the greatness I had expected. In fact I can’t really remember the last time I was truly blown away with the improved performance of a video card. (I’m sure if I had to go back to using the TNT or TNT2 Ultra cards that I had a few years ago I would have something different to say).

I have to admit after reading up a little, I am starting to get intrigued. I could be tempted by a sweet Alienware box with one of those beauties in it. But my ATI All in Wonder gives me everything I need for now. I don’t do much gaming on my PC anymore and I’m more interested in video capture and editing these days. Plus there is just something sweet about watching the playoffs on your PC while working on a report.

My bets are Shane will probably have one of these cards within a month or two. He can justify it a little better anyhow since video performance is a huge part of how he makes a living.

    hmmm, nice
    Now I am at a loss abt which way to go, ATI or Nvidia.
    The question that still remains is, “I wonder how Half Life 2 would perform on it”
