    HD2900Pro and X19XX cards?

    I think the high end should get the HD2900pro instead. Its like 100$ cheaper than the GTS and offers about the same performance, and more if overclocked. And I think the midrange should get a previous generation X1900 card cause they are much better for gaming. The 8600 should be like a 2nd choice for HTPC.

    2900pro should be the real mid range card price wise its almost spot on, performance wise u cant complain either.

    I would like to recommend the HD 2900 Pro -- but having never tested it or even SEEN it after asking both AMD and their partners I doubt how long it will be around.

    I also see that DX10 features ae going to be more used as time progresses.
