well, i think 7800GTX512 is faster than 7800GT SLI. but meh, it plays all the games i have perfectly so idc. plus ill be able o ovreclock my stuff further once i get my new motherboard.
oh, sorry for being a newb on that vista thing (still learnin) i thought that even if you had a window minized (or even something covering the desktop) the video card would still have to devote a little bit of memory to it. srry lol. i still dont think ill upgrade. XP is working fine for me. (until something comes out that requires it). i'd rather spend my extra money on hardware.

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
