    There have been alot of reviews, articles and information available so far on the Geforce FX, so ive opened a site poll to get peoples opinions on the card in one thread.

    Do you feel its worth purchasing after reading the reviews? is it too loud? overpriced? does it perform well enough? or would you rather spend the money on a 9700 pro from ATI? Or are you waiting for the FX to come down in price before spending your hard earned cash?

    Vote, then post your comments.

    Personally, if NVidia can make that card A LOT quieter, by all means. I wouldn't mind taking up the extra PCI slot (I have 3 open. :duh: ) sooo....

    But ya', ever since I got a raise I've been pretty frugal with cash - and I like NVidia's drivers, I think NVidia can bring the card to its potential.

    If that other article was true about the sound of a heartbeat, damn man, that'd be a nice card. lol!

    Anyways, I'm out. heh

    No.
    I would rather buy 9700 PRO for that money, because it is better and I prefer ATI.
    But at the moment I will not buy either because I always buy expensive technology when it is already outdated, so I can get it at reasonable price ;)

    nVidia is dead

    I would never buy such a card. It is so expensive and it is so loud. I'll go with ATI. It is a lot cheaper and performs almost the same. And it has superb picture quality and excellent support for DVD playback. The only bad thing about ATI currently is their lack of support for Linux. I hope they wake up and start doing something about this.

    I have a 9700 pro and can only see it getting better with the new drivers coming out. The FX may be a little faster; but in no way better. So I'm not even thinking about changing. Nice try NVIDIA.:D

    I did preorder one of these beasts the other day but have since cancelled it decided to stick with my trusty old 4600ti for a while longer, the test rig really did it for me too noisey and far to expensive.

    Welp, I have never bought anything Nvidia before, and after reading the reviews for the FX, that stance is only reinforced. I'll stick with ATI.

    Well i just got my Radeon 9500 pro, and i'm more than happy with it.
    The last time i spent more than £250 on a card was when the GF2 came out, and i will never do it again.

    Geforce FX

    The FX doesnt really show anymore performance than the 9700 Pro.The ATI price is going to be dropping a little so it looks to be a good time to buy the ATI card.I have a GF4 4600 and it is more than I need, and I wouldnt want something that hot and noisy in my case anyway.I'm wondering why the FX doesn't have better performance than it shows at 500/500DDR.Choppy

    I have to upgrade my CPU before I do anymore GPU upgrading. I'll eventually buy the FX when I learn more about water cooling - then I'm gonna have some fun!

    I will be keeping my 9700 pro. I dont see where the minor performance gain from the FX in some areas and loses in other areas justifies buying this card. I dont see where now it is worth buying

    Damn, my Ti4200 64mb scores the close to the R9700Pro at stock speeds. Why bother spending the 100-150$ more for 5% better speed?
