I am quite pleased with the 8800 GT 512MB card. <br>Yes, I would prefer an 8800 GTX card but I knew that wasn't going to happen.<br>I would have also have prefered the 8800 GTS 512MB G92 card but I knew that card was launched too late for the new Mac Pro.<br><br>BUT the 8800 GT card performs favorably against the 8800 GTX.<br>The 8800 GTX outperforms the 8800 GT at higher resolutions.<br><br>BUT the 8800 GT is quieter and consumes less power than the 8800 GTX and by a large margin.<br><br>AND it could have been a lot worse. The high-end card could have been ATI's HD3870. <br>It's a good card but not near as good as the 8800 GT. So I would have had to kill myself.<br><br>I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE 8800 GT<br><br><br><br><br>

Why is it a bad move? You can always get one later and add it in there.<br><br>And I think that Apple is probably waiting for the dust to settle. I'm sure they don't want to back something that may end up dead.
