Watch movies the way Hollywood intended Features the revolutionary second generation NVIDIA PureVideo® HD engine, it delivers astounding Blu-ray and HD DVD movie picture quality on a PC.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) lighting with 16x full-screen anti-aliasing brings cool cinematic effects to game scenes without compromising image quality
Volumetric smoke and fog create ultra realistic battle explosions and true 3D smoke
Depth of Field (DOF) enables in-game "focus" effects, such as sharper focus to objects viewed through the scope on a rifle
Motion blur adds cinematic realism to game scenes by blurring rapidly moving objects
Stream-out generated rain creates rain particles that are more impressive than traditional 2D texture animations
Soft particles smoothly blend on contact with terrain and other objects dramatically improving realism
Skinned instancing spawns larger numbers of characters in a scene resulting in more complex scenes and visually stunning crowds
Deformation for real-time rendering of changes to the world geometry creates life-like effects such as non-rigid terrain deformations from explosions, and breakable buildings
Gamespot: GeForce 8800 GT Hands-on "The GeForce 8800 GT is the GPU to buy for this holiday season, and the XFX GeForce 8800 GT is an excellent card based on Nvidia's new blockbuster chip. It's affordable, supports both DirectX 9 and DirectX 10, and has more than enough performance power to handle graphics-heavy games such as BioShock, World in Conflict, Crysis, Unreal Tournament 3, and Hellgate: London."
HardOCP: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT "Right now though, the GeForce 8800 GT offers you the best value on the planet when it comes to 3D gaming cards. You won't be disappointed in its performance, and you won't be disappointed in the cost."
Tech Report: Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GT graphics processor "With pricing between $199 and $249, I find it hard to recommend anything else — especially since we found generally playable settings at 2560x1600 resolution in some of the most intensive new games (except for Crysis, which is in a class by itself.)"
