In my bios, my motherboard has the option to raise the operating frequentcy etc. as i put more stress on the proc, so in high demanding times such as say, Quake 4 or FEAR, my motherboard begins to move up in incriments until it sees a steadier flow. Then once my load or workload lessens it drops. Sort of an up and down effect.
Thank you all so much for the input, now it's simply a matter of the 7900 or 7950GT, i was interested in the 7900 considering that it was only a similar price difference(i believe someone said 70 dollars?) from buying another 7600GT.
I wanted to 'experiment' with SLi, not for performance reasons but, to see it for myself and make my own assesment. I know other computer users with 4 monitors on crossfire. insane.
btw: Meithan, ty for the info on partitioning my HD, I successfully split it into 3 partitions. Although i could not partition ubuntu on there so i will wait for another hard drive upgrade.
In terms of monitor specs, i think that the Max resolution on monitors(and my budget) will suffice, although, would the resolution apply to outside frequentcies. Such as a HD TV?
