1) Did someone just say Valve saved ATI? No, ATI actually writing decent drivers saved ATI.
2) TF2 = HL2 multiplayer. Free download. I called it 16 months ago, I'm sticking to it now.
3) Yes, the 6800 does PS3.0. But by the time something uses 3.0 in a manner that sets it apart from 2.0 the 6800 will be useless, bargin bin material. I've learned not to buy a video card planning to run the top of the line games with all the features on a year after the purchase. Think of all the cards that can run 8x AA but get 15 fps when you enable it.
