Default New Video Card Suggestions?

I currently have the NX8600GTS-T2D256E-HD OC and after 1 day I am having some issues and need to switch..

What's comparable?

Must have DUAL DVI-D output...

No, the hardware in X1900xt is not DX10 compatible......

Anyway, you haven't told us what is the issue you are having in your video card ??!!

If you want DX10 then I strongly recommend 8800GTS 320MB.....

Yea, I think the X2900XT beats the 8800GTS 640mb, not by large though. Plus, you can fold with it.
