    Any idea what the low-end NV35 specs will be?

    Are you in Australia???? If yes please visit this website and get the price of GeForce FX 5900. The website is www.zipcomputers.com.au.

    Its 128 MB ram and lower clock frequencese. (Sorry, can't remember the exact Mhz.)
    Its not like an MX or anything.

    Bahh the low end 5900 edition in performance is slower from the Nv30 (5800 ultra)

    Go for a standard non ultra 5900..It has very good performance and the price is right for what it can give

    Well the 5800 isn't exactly a ti4200! Performance around there or a bit below would be fine for most users. Usually the value goes up as you go down anyway, up to a certain point (the MX point, usually).

    Well, $400 is a bit much for a video card.

    5900 Value performance= Is almost the same with 5800 non ultra or a little lower in performance..

    5900 non Ultra=just like the 5800 ultra in performance(or somewhere between 5800 ultra nad the non ultra) only much better with AA and AF(just like the 9800pro)

    5900 Ultra=The fastest GPU\card in planet from Nvidia :D
    But with a price from HELL..and until ATI with R360 and R400 arrive a little later and have these more faster sollution available..

    But the 5900 Value would be better than the 5600, correct?

    I have a 5600 FX, and on my PC its running very fast. I seemed to have had better luck with this card than some others. This could be do to the RDRAM memory in my PC. The 5900 value should be a faster card. No matter what the actual mhz it will have, the 256bit bandwith will be a big advantage over the NV30's 128bit.

    Last I read the only difference between the 5900 Ultra and 5900 is that the Ultra has 256MB instead of 128MB. I also read that there is no clock differences between the two, so all your paying that extra $100 for is an extra 128MB of ram. Hope this helps.

    #ReDux Pras, he is talking about a third model under the 128meg 5900. It will also have 128megs of ram and will be clocked lower than the 5900 and 5900 Ultra. In a way...it will replace the role of the 5600.

    If they're replacing anything I think it must be the 5800/5800 ultra.. I'd imagine the 5600 will be with us for awhile yet.

    Perhaps its an FX 5900 with only a 128-bit bus? But with the same clock speeds, and memmory configs. (Since the FX 5800 has been scrapped, it could carry that name, with a suffix)

    No. I think all the 5900 will come with 256 bit bus.
    (Don't think nVIDIA will do the same mistake again ;))

    I read that the 5900 cards are officially replacing the 5800 cards.

    When are they going to officially unveil the specs for the 5900 Value? All nVidia has for 5900 is the Ultra.
