Do you think having something under the title of each graph saying "Best playable settings" would make the graphs any easier to understand? Possibly a * with some small text below explaining?

As always we welcome constructive feedback in order to improve our reviews and make them easier to understand - so don't feel like you have to bite your lip (of course that's always easier to say when it isn't my review ;) )

Nah I wasn't getting lary (hates forums as you can't express emotion), but ye I try to give people some numbers in the form of min, max, avr but my main aim is to show what you're actually getting when you buy one of these cards: what you're games play like and how well they play

I would do 2 graphs but after coming home from a long day @ work once set of results inputted into excel, graphs made pretty, images saved, images uploaded...blahblah, yep I don't really have time.

Thanks for the critique, I'll try to think up some more ways of displaying the info

very nice card but drivers for Vista in box?

19-12-2006, 11:42:17

There are no Vista drivers for 8800 afaik

nVidia say that these will be released for the official Vista Launch

Please note after a couple of conversations with people I decided to revisit some overclocking on the card. Twas a nice result

Very nice :) Btw, on the original OC you put the effective memory clocks while on the 2nd you didn't so it can be slightly confusing. Might want to change one of them :)

19-12-2006, 20:45:23
