    Nvidia will announce the 8800 GTS with 512MB I guess, not the 8800 GT again. I wonder if they'll release a new beta driver too, 169.21 seems to surpass the 169.12/13/17.

    no, dx 10.1 will be supported in next-gen cards, maybe the 9000 series.
    we don't need dx 10.1 cards, we need faster dx 10.0 cards.

    Unfortunately not enough as to justify the huge price difference. The GT and GTS perform very similar. It has even been suggested that the 128 steam processors, although present on the card, are not all enabled. I expected more, to be sincere. But I'll keep waiting for the february cards anyway.

    Hehe, I was talking about the driver. It is already a few weeks ago since Crysis has been released and I wonder how much nVidia could improve the performance of the game.

    Supported display modes for NV_DISP.INF Version 169.21, 12/05/2007

    lol so all we get is WHQL tag nothing more people, it will be nice if creative labs driver in vista has WHQL then it will match with 169.21 WHQL but since it dont have that logo i have to use beta.
