It has been hard for us to get excited by an nVidia card for quite some time. However, both 5950 and 5700 based cards seem to be doing a good job, and competition between ATI and nVidia gives us more of a chance of picking up a card at a cheaper price with plenty of power to boot as they both battle it out for number one spot.
We have found the new N595U from Gigabyte to be a power house with a better optimised BIOS and a much better overclocking result. We managed a core speed of 630MHz DDR and a memory speed of 1.03GHz DDR without breaking a sweat - with some better cooling, who knows what can be achieved.
Overall the power and the features of this video card from Gigabyte are great, but the 5950 Ultra does carry a big price tag. If you have deep pockets, the N595U is the one for you.
Great games and software bundle
