    Hell yes the 8800 will out perform the PS3
    As to what the PS3 has as it's equal, I have no idea.

    I be willing to beat a that the 7800s and for sure the 7900s will beat the crap out of a PS3's graphics.

    You're never going to beat a console's graphics on a PC because the console is connected to a television, and the television masks the graphical flaws that a PC monitor clearly displays.

    Besides, you don't buy a PC just for it's graphical capabilities. Even the most die-hard gamer will still check their email on their gaming rig.

    Anandtech had a pretty in depth write up on the 80 series cards and they mentioned that the 7950gt (It might have been the 7900) was pretty much on par with what a PS3 was capable of. They also mentioned the fact that when the PS3 spec was finalized there was a lot of press coming out that no pc would ever match it and the g80s are already a step beyond :mamoru:

    From what I've read the cell structure of the PS3 graphics is a brilliant design,
    and is a lot better than people have given it credit for.

    I could be wrong but from the sounds of it, I think nVidia did something similar in concept with the 8800 cards.
