That kind of validates my point in a way - score for performance should be just for performance. But, if one card that costs 3 times less scores 8 and achieves similar performance, why not then give this card a 10? or, if we consider value too, 5 due to the nature of the card itself. Or, if a GTX 285 scores an 8, shouldn't all the cards that are lower performance also score lower? I can't imagine you guys doing a review of let's say radeon 4770 and giving it a performance score of 5 Anyway, I think I am getting too detailed and the discussion is now more about your grading than your reviews. What do you guys think about the Driver Heaven review of this card though? They seemed to drool all over it with performance data to back it up. A kind of a discrepancy... Mind double checking this card with the CPU over clocked to the max and windows 7 installed to 'calm the mind'?
