lol... word! You can buy 2 dells for that price. Granted, they're freakin fire hazards that need to be put to death directly after thier birth, but you still could buy 2 dells...

Because we like to play cutting edge games, duh.

I concur. It runs the less demanding games like a charm. Did have loading times prolonged a bit for hl2 and stuff, but a simple, very small increment to performance by overclocking did the trick. Must say one of the best mid-ranged cards at the time I bought it (Now you can get a 6600 GT in the price range which ofcourse beats it out of the water)

I would suggest going Nvdia. Ati are doing horrible, and I absolutely despise the driver support for their cards.
