The move to our new test platform a few weeks ago allowed us to move the video card test platform to the next level with a bigger 24 monitor, higher resolution (1920x1200) and enabling of 4x AA and 16x AF by default in everything except for 3DMark which is a synthetic test. The 8800GT has similar specifications to the 9800GTX with 16 fewer SPs and it should be an interesting performance comparison.
