    Hi All

    If you get a chance have a read of the Nvidia 7800GTX over on HTPCNews
    http://www.htpcnews.com/main.php?id=nvidia_editors_day_1

    Points of interest are
    Inverse 2:2 Pulldown Correction
    Better Hi-Def Support
    Hi-Def component out
    Purevideo
    H264 accelleration (may be useful for next-gen DVD)
    Forceware 75 (or as HTPCNews say "death of powerstrip")
    "ready for the Windows Graphics Foundation 1.0 standard found in Longhorn"
    "One big item of note is how quiet this card was for a high level card... almost HTPC quiet already"
    and obviously......gaming....


    Although price is going to be a problem for most of us - hopefully these features will find thier way onto Nvidias medium range 6600 replacements.




    p.s.- if your there, checkout the HTPCNews review of the ATI 550 Pro tuner cards...
