I'm hoping to purchase a 5900 FX soon. There is an interesting post at [H]ardOCP about a response by NVidea on poor performance and their upcoming driver version. It appears they are placing a lot on the line toward significant improvements.

[H]ardCOP? Thats truly a reliable source for video card information eh?

Your going to fork out $400 big ones on a card for what a $150 dollar midrange card can do better in DX9 games?

Your money pal.

Can't wait for Det50's to make there debut. Iteresting to see how they hack and cheat these ones as well.

IMO, FX line of cards are a flop. Get back to the drawing board NV and get back into the biusness of making good cards and out of the buisness of con.

I don't know if NVidia is better or worse than ATI. Many folks here seem to have as much success playing FB as with ATI.
The price of a 5900 128meg at PriceWatch including shipping is $237.
The article at [H]ardOCP is a direct response from NVidia PR. The stated link to their site gives full explanation of their upcoming version.
I'm only hoping.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I ***HIGHLY*** suggest you wait and see when the dirvers come out. PLEASE dont go running out asap as soon as you see the results.

Everyone is saying there is no valid way to improve performance beyond what the dets are rendering now unless it's degraded IQ.

I used several nvidia cards. riva128, tnt2, gf2mx, and gf4ti. I still like them. But, I don't believe their statements on driver improvement any more. Nvidia gains some performance at the cost of quality. I hope they will stop developing cheating technology. Oh my love, Nvidia! please..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I say only and ONLY if you never are going to play dx 9 games get a 5900 ULTRA or any other FX card.

Have you seen the benches in dx 9 games like HALO, HL 2 and tomb raider? And heard the inverviews with both John Carmack and the Valve people?

A 9600 is faster than the 5900 ULTRA in most benchies in these benchmarks. If you don´t believe me hear what the nVidia people at www.nvnews.net (http://www.nvnews.net) thinks about this.

There is a lot of people trying to sell their 5900 ULTRA on ebay as we speak so if you only play dx 8 games you can get it for a bargain.

What you really need is a 9700 PRO or faster Radeon.

Nv's netset of drivers 50 series) are "supposeably" to make the game kick a$$. BUT, as what many sites are finding out, is that NV has found ways to, well.. lets say, they found a way to inflate their scores.

Do a wide search through the web, and youll see what everyone is talking about.
