Wow maybe I shouldn't have sent my 2600 xt back for refund when I saw how awful it's performance was and realized that I had found benchmarks that people used specific software in order to skew it into looking like a good part?

Oh wait most of this is crossfire improvements, nevermind.

...and nVidia could tell us a lot about that too. Seriously, 8800GTX ownership hasn't been all 'fun' over the past 6-8 months!
