An anonymous reader writes: Many people I know — and unsurprisingly, many people online — have already written that the quality of the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix standard DVD is of such poor quality that a VHS tape is a superior version. Even older DVDs from earlier movies in the series stand up with higher quality than this release. Is this a ploy by Warner Bros. to push the HD versions of the film?

Apparently that still wasn't good enough for the NVIDIA as they announced the new GeForce 8800 Ultra today that tops their GTX part as the world's fastest GPU. PC Perspective has put the new card through a large battery of tests including Rainbow Six Vegas, Supreme Commander Oblivion and five other titles. And guess what? It wins them all. AMD better hope that R600 is the powerhouse we are all expecting, but at over $800 MSRP, the 8800 Ultra is still going to have a limited audience, to say the least."
