    And it also costs about the same. You also need a new Core Duo system to
    take advantage of the card. It's getting quite expensive.

    It's a remarquable DX9 performer but what if it were totally inadequate for
    DX10 games? I'd wait for the ATI R600 to come out and then for the DX10

    This is a really stupid comparison as the PS3 is a $600 machine, whereas
    a new 8800 series will run 300-400. The GPU alone can run circles
    around the chopped down NV71/3 based PS3 and Cell.

    OTOH, if good games aren't written for the PC, only for game boxes <
    Call of Duty 3 comes to mind > who's going to bother with upgrading
    their video card?

    This would have been a valid analogy, except the PS3 will be neither
    affordable nor widely available. :p

    both deimos' and 'the dog from that film you saw' arguements are
    wrong. the 8800GTX will cost over $600 and the somewhat less powerful
    8800GTS will cost around $500.

    here's why your arguements are bad though -- the PS1 in 1994/1995 and
    the PS2 in 2000 ran circles around the most powerful/expensive PC cards
    of their times in pure performance
    (polygons, pixels, bandwidth).

    but this time, with PS3, it's behind the fastest LAST-gen PC GPUs
    ( 7800, 7900 series, and ATI X1800, X1900 series) not to mention
    being massively outclassed by the G80 and upcoming R600.
