Since your keep your computers SOO long, you should get PCI-E, as nubius said it is devoted towards graphics cards

And the AV8 3rd eye is the worst board for overclocking, I can't raise my FSB 1mhz with PCI lock on, and have the ability to play games.

DFI lanparty, 6600gt and a 3200 venice is a lovely combination. Or if you are not desperate for a pc now, the new GPU's are worth a look at if they are not too pricey, but even if they are, the 6800gt would be alot cheaper.

edit: I would wait anyway, if you can afford it get one of the new series from either ATI or nvidia, or get a 6800gt.

PCI-E is solely for graphics cards and the quadros are not good for gaming at all. If Ironcad is your type of game then go for it but if you REALLY wanna spend that kinda money on a video card then you could always get 2 6800GTs in SLI lol.

I'm confused, $1000 for a video card or a whole computer? If it's for a video card wait a few months and get two x900 xt pe's in crossfire.

For once I agree with dale! If ATI gets their problems with the x900xt worked out...its going to pwn the 7800 series from Nvidia. Wait and get 2 X900XTs...that will be sweet!

but from what we've all been seeing ATI has had alot of troubles so keep your mind open on both companies like im doing. i wont say whos better till i see some REAL benchies and in-game screenies. But i to agree w/ dale if ATi gets their **** together then the X900XT PE will pwn.

I honestly hope they do get it together, because it will be awesome to have a card with the kind of power the X900XT is supposed to have. But it will be best to wait a while after the cards come out before making a decision, because even this generation, the X800s pwned at first because of driver problems with the 6800 series.
