Astro has a point.

The present gaming "standard" is 1680x1050, which is the widescreen equivalent to 1280x1024.

Prices on 1920x1200 monitors are dropping fast, however, and it's expected to become the new standard resolution for gaming very soon, making affordable high-performance GPUs more necessary than ever.

As far as R700 goes, if AMD can just make the core and shader clocks run separately like Nvidia did, then there is no doubt in my mind that R700 will be competitive. Look at how close they came without doing that. Their GPUs can clock very high, and they've solved the power consumption problem by going to 55nm. Separate core and shader clocks are the only obstacle that they need to overcome to beat Nvidia.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
