We continue our Geforce 8800 320Mb tests with the additional of models from Asus, Albatron, Leadtek and the TEC cooled Calibre, comparing gaming performance, overclocking potential and cooling capability with the previous tested cards. This roundup will help you decide what card to get; read on if you´re in the market for a higher end VGA upgrade

yes idd, great stuff!
I'm anciously awaiting a 8800GTX with a fanless design cooler. I know it's asking a lot but there are vga-coolers out there that are up for the challenge if you ask me. Placing one for myselfs is out of the question, I don't want to wreck a 500 euro graphicscard and lose my warranty.
Keep up the good reviewing!

OK........I have the Albatron 8800 gts 320mb that you guys tested, and I see that nobody is testing any card with the new Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Why is that??? I mean....everyone says that this game is quite heavy...and with the albatron card, this game (I watched the game's frame rate counter) gave me 2 to 5 frames on some missions with intense environments (1280x1024 and low in game settings). With less intense environments, and with low settings on the Nvidia control panel, it reached 25 "maybe" 30 fps max, and that happened "sometimes". And I'm using the new Beta drivers from Nvidia 169.17. With those drivers, the same "tough" mission got a maximum of 10 frames. I tampered with the nvidia control panel and pushed up the AA and Anisotropic filters, and the filters of the game, and the frames average between 6 and 13-14. Is that normal??? or am I doing something wrong??? or could it be because of the monitor??? (lol)....I'm planing to play around with the overclocking and see what frames I'll get......is it possible for you to run a test with the FSX and see what numbers you can get????

hhhmmm yes!!!!!........I've been told that before....about the Pentium 4, and I was suggested a Core 2 duo, prefferably one with more than 2GHz. could it be the cpu that limits the frames after all???..........I've tried lower rezolusions too and didn't have any improvement on the frames.........as if something is blocking the card from giving more frames. But anyway, do you know if fsx is actualy that heavy??? .....I've read some reviews of the game and they said that it's for next generation cards.

FSX is a huge resource hog, it will require a lot of RAM, raw CPU power and high end VGA card to run half decent, running it under Vista will further degrade performance;
