From what i understand, the 4670 from AMD beats the crap out of this card, and costs less aswell...

A swing and a miss for the green team... B:)

Great review, but I would have liked to have seen the Palit GT 220 tested against the 4670.

If we would have had one left we would have :)

At gaming, yes.

and pricing, and features yes
heck you could even get an 8800GT cheaper than this waste of a PCI-E slot :lol:

Thanks for the review though coke, I bet you can't wait to get back to a quality card again :P

I was disappointed in the lack of lower end cards compared. The review was good, but the comparisons simply were not the right ones for the demographic the card is aimed at. Someone looking at this card would not also be looking at GTX 260+ level cards.

you REALLY aren't missing much (compared to 210 and 4670)

Wow, sounds like Nvidia kinda messed it up here. They should have just waited till they release the GT300.
