hate to crap your thread nosboost, but w/ my 3200+ and 7900gt overclocked, I got 9310 in 05'. If you opty isnt overclocked, this shows that the good ol' 3200+ can run with the big dogs! lol now, when you get that other 7900gt, Ill keep my mouth shut

If you seem so sure of the performance why are you even bothering posting this thread?

I say expect around a 25-40% increase on "normal" resolutions. Personally I think it's a waste of money to get another 7900 GT with G80 coming out this year.

I agree with the General and Beefcake, but fellas, let us not interfere in what WTK uses his money for. He gets really upset when we tell him that he's wasting his parents' money.

i don't really see it as a waste of money, i feel it was a better move than me going with 1 7900gtx, cuz this beats it by a good margin for only about 100 dollars more, no singlecard solutions can keep up with dual 7900gt's so i'm okay with it.. and i don't see g80's being useful until the end of this year.. and as for the cpu part, i dunno i read what gaara had posted, unless he changed his mind, i took him as a credible person here, so i guess i was mislead, if not, someone correct anything

Finally passed you up nosboost (and only on a 3200+ at 2.95ghz too!)

Good luck w/ the 7900gt setup, and hopefully you dont get one of the many gt's that has issues.
