Yeah but the amount of transistors doesnt make the card. Ron!n is right. It does not outperform the 8800GTX by much. But it does outperform the 8800 and the 8800GT and the 8800GTS. The GTX which is the top of the line is still the only card to beat the 9800 series card. Which is only a mid-range card. So for a Mid-Range card to only be beat out by a top of line card. Yeah i would say that is good.
