Great idea - bundle the game with the card that offers only half-decent performance in it! :laugh:

Woot ! I want them to drop the price rather than bundle more and more games with the cards and keeping or raising the prices ... :/

Me? I just find it funny that NVidia mopped the floor with ATI in Doom 3 benchmarks, yet they package Doom 3 with it...explain how this makes me an ignorant noob please.

game bundles are great for both companies, as well as retailors. it does get frustrating ati is pushing back its release for its "new opengl code" / compiler. when its finished i do hope their is a significant increase for the consumers.

:/ I didnt really think the Nvidia cards beat the ATi that badly, but I am upgrading to an Nvidia just because of this game. Im just hoping HL2 will run ok on it.

dunno about "mopped the floor" but yes Nvidia was quite ahead of ATi in Doom 3 benches.

But you said "half decent performance" which is a false statement as the performance on a X800 averaged well above 55fps.

half decent ? No. Less than Nvidia ? Yes

Just because Nvidia moped ATI in the benchmarks with Doom 3, that doesn't make ATI's card not good enought to run Doom 3. It's just not the best choice of graphics card to run doom 3 with.
