Though if you can affored, get a x1900xtx it pwns any Nvidia card I know of , and also you ARE buying an ATI supporting mobo, any ATI card would work better than a nvidia card on it..
the x1900xtx is out of my price range. i did some research, and the 7900 gt overclocked by eVGA is very close in bench mark scores, and definately the best price/performance card I could find.

By the way, I don't see any point in preordering. I want to see more proof before I get this new CPU. There's no point in getting a motherboard now, either.
There is plenty of benchmarks out ther performed both by intel and many other reputable sources.

the conroe clearly beats the fx-62, and its only half the price. seems like a good deal to me.

Yeah. I don't disagree. I'm just making extra sure.

Yeah, same here...prices should be down and AMD should have released their answer to Conroe by then, not to mention the G80 and R600 cards will be out.

Meh. By then, there'll be something else to wait 3 more months for. It's a never-ending cycle. Besides, I can only stick with 256 megs of RAM for so long.

AMD's not bringing anything until mid-2007. Dream on if you think they'll have something by January.

Don't get the ASUS motherboard. Asus boards tend to have chips that overheat. I have first hand experience with that. I would get a DFI instead.

Asus makes excellent motherboards.

Maybe some Asus borads get a little hot, but this one has heatpipe cooling on the northbridge, and seems to work well. Asus boards are solid, although so are DFI. I would get a DFI but I cant find any that will support Conroe by the time i need to build it. and besides, I know the Asus im gettin is overpriced, but its packed with features, just take a look at it.
