lol, you are right, it does actually run pretty good; at least in the game tests is reasonable. the second cpu test is the one where the flaming sword is so choppy it is hard to appreciate, but then again i only have an xp@1632. regardless the use of all the bumpmaping and shader effects are amazing, i remember when the tests with bump mapping was just one big square with four different maps and a moving light.

anyway, as for an upgrade, don't upgrade for a benchmark!

if you have a directx 8 capable card you are probably just fine in every game you play, if you don't and you also also have trouble running your games at the settings you would like then a anything from a 9500pro up is bound to make for a good card. as for the geforce fx; no one knows when its going to be available now anymore than we thought we did when it was supposed to be out 6 months ago. right now there is some pretty impressive reviews of "sample cards" on some major hardware sites but from where i am sitting it looks as if they are very deceptively crossing the line of journalistic integrity and into the realm of fraud. there are questions neatly tucked away in the articles that beg for answering, yet when questioned directly the authors tend to either ignore it or respond with snide comments and rhetoric. it is really sad to see the way a large company can manipulate the evidence to point to where those who are not realy looking will think that it is pointing in their favor.

personally i have little interest in the product at this point, as well as great disgust for the way it is being pushed. though hopefuly they will clean up their act and the nv35 should be interesting; not to mention coming along late this year when it will be about time for me to upgrade again.
