There must be something wrong with your setup. My x1950 pro get's framerates about the same as what that HD3870 was getting. Call of Duty 4 was particularly strange, many people with those cards are able to get minimum framerates higher than your averages.

With 4xAA and 16xAF? I don't think so.

The ATI drivers from last year dont help.

As I pointed out to you before, those "ATI drivers from last year" are in fact slightly faster than the latest drivers in almost all single-card cases.

i think the recently released "8800GS 384MB" does just about have enough memory...i would be very interested to see it reviewed on xbitlabs.
it would be nice to see it compared to the 9600GT 512mb cards especially in overclocked situations.

Yeah I would love to see the 8800gs and 9600gt go head to head.I think it would be nearly
equal since even though the 9600 has more/faster memory the 8800gs has 32 more stream
processors.I went with the 9600gt myself after giving up waiting for Evga to release their
8800gs[I don't like the XFX model,which unfortunately,is the only one available].I suspect
that Nvidia nixed the 8800gs so as not to hurt sales of the 9600gt.The new driver for the
9600gt needs serious tweaking too.Crysis runs well on high settings but the image quality is
worse than my old 8600gts-WTF?

yeah, i think the xfx has crappy memory on it (1.4 ns ?).
the 8800GS 384mb is especially interesting when combines with speedy 0.8 ns memory so it will overclock like a beast and reach 8800GT 512mb speeds for a sweet price.
i think evga and galaxy put speedy memory on the 8800GS cards
