that card can /definately/ hit the 100FPS mark from time to time.

/constant/ 90 would surely be an error though - that seems too high for
some maps in Q3 - the framerate would normally dip in some areas.

I have more number crunching power, you have (probably) better RAM
I chose to trade the extra bandwidth for number crunching power as I
tend to use things that process a lot of data, not just fling it around.

Plus, I dont like intel ;-)
