    what is the core and ram clocks on the 8500? the GF3 Ti500 will be in stores at about the same time as the 8500. the GF3 Ti500 is rumored to have a core of 240-250 and a ram clock of 520-550.

    nVidia's drivers for Macs blow. I can't stand them, and the performance was well below what was promised (yet still much better than anything else for Mac).

    For a Windows machine, i wouldn't hesitate to pick up a GF3 Ti500, but for Macs, i garauntee the Radeon 8500 will blow away the GF3 and have much better drivers from day 1.

    I'll probably upgrade, depending on the price.

    What interests me more is that the Radeon 7500 only costs $179 (according to the Tom's Hardware review, I think), that might be my next card, it fits into my budget more with the other upgrades I have planned.
