The new 8800GT that they are now shippingwith bigger fan seems much more quieter and bit cooler big plus for me. I am now thinking to go back nVidia ( I had 7900 GS sli prior getting HD 2900 Pro and new system ) But I am not satisfied with its AA performance. So I am thinking to get either HD 3870 or 8800 GT. If I go 8800GT I will loose the ability to upgrade later on crossfire. I like my cards cool and quiet and having good AA performance. Should I go for 8800GT or Get 3870 now and later another? I am still bit weary to see over 90 Degree C's temperatures I've seen in 8800GT as load temperatures. It doesn't seem to be that good option since I plan to keep next VGA card for few years in intensive gaming. I play games like FEAR, Oblivion etc with eye candy as maxed as possible. Crysis , Aquanox and Assassins Creed are on my buy list. All pretty graphically demanding games. I have 17" CRT "flat screen" so my max resolution is 1280 x 960 or 1152 x 864 in games.
