When we found out that gaming champion Jonathan 'Fatal1ty' Wendel's collaboration with graphics vendor XFX only produced a mid-range GeForce 8600 GT card, we were understandably disappointed. No doubt the overclocked extreme version of the GeForce 8600 GT turned out to be excellent for its class but we questioned if it would be adequate for a professional gamer

Well, as it turns out, XFX and Fatal1ty has another card to play and that is none other than a high-end GeForce 8800 GTS card, which you will admit, is more worthy of a gaming professional. Appropriately, this new card belongs to the Profess1onal series and XFX continues to milk Fatal1ty's gaming creed by featuring the gamer on the distinctive red packaging of this card. Once again, XFX has gone for spectacular clock speeds on this GeForce 8800 GTS, with the core clock coming in at 650MHz, an increase of 150MHz over the default clock. Meanwhile, the memory also gets pumped up to 2000MHz DDR from 1600MHz. But is that enough for the professional gamer?
