    I just helped someone yesterday setup a 8800GTX with the 1.0-9746 display drivers. Below are his initial thoughts.

    I got 95FPS on doom3 demo with 8xAA 1600X1200 ultra quality. I think there is more left. The temps stay below 62DC.
    This was with a water-cooled BFG 8800GTX.

      I hope I didn't give the wrong idea about the 8800 series cards (or even Nvidia). I simply feel that for my setup running a 19" WS LCD, it isn't going to utilize this card's potential at all...Quite the opposite - I found it to be a problem. If you have a larger monitor or even dual-head setup, I'm confident that it is phenomenal.

        Heh...and I'm just the opposite, I can't get enough computing power! I load my PC with so many things at once (I'm a heavy multi-tasker) that the PC usually begins slowing down (it gets "choppy") within a few minutes of those apps loading. When I was on Winbloze, I'd routinely crash any PC I could get my hands on within an hour, but GNU/Linux seems to take on the abuse much better. Things can get *very* slow sometimes, but the O.S. never freezes, crashes or restarts by itself.

          I hear ya - I have computing power, just not as much GPU power. My rig is an E6600 Core 2 @ 2.87ghz. I've had it to 3.6 on air. I love it!

            What heatsink are you using?

              I have the Zalman 9500 LED. Also using 2GB Corsair PC2-6400 & Asus P5W DH Deluxe.

              This was with the older bios (14-something). I haven't tested it with the newest bios 1707. However, I noticed a definite improvement in boot speed with the newest bios. The P5W DH is also very Linux friendly with everything being picked up but the wireless card.

                Some Very Preliminary Results

                Some Very Preliminary Results... A few movie and Quake 4 comparison shots between ATI and NVIDIA on Linux can be found @ http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=8380

                With the great deal of articles that we publish in regards to NVIDIA and ATI display drivers, it is very evident that at this time NVIDIA has the lead when it comes to the frame-rate performance -- with their Linux drivers performing nearly the same as their Windows ForceWare counterpart. ATI has been struggling to improve the performance of their fglrx drivers, and while they had made strides last year, they still have a great deal of work ahead of them. However, one of the areas that often is not mentioned in Phoronix articles is the image quality between ATI and NVIDIA's hardware with their respective drivers. In this article today we will be looking at both company's image quality under Linux in video playback and gaming environments.

                  Tom's hardware recently ran a comparison of Avivo vs. Purevideo on Windows using the HQV benchmark DVD.

                  I would be interested in seeing how well Linux drivers are able to handle the benchmark DVD. One thing the article at Tom's pointed out was that a lot of the image-quality settings were disabled by default and some were difficult to find. I'm curious about what control over these settings the Linux drivers give you.
