I think the drive will come with the graphic card when you purchase them. So that's it.

Just download the latest drivers off nvidia.com the ones on the cd are probably outdated.

Because you just ripped yourself off. The ati x1900xtx owns that and is about 150 dollars less.

Heck, the X1900XT owns it and that only costs 450 bucks for a SAPPHIRRE version as well.

Dante, the link you gave is for the 256MB version.

Yes I bought it. The main reason is I am tired of ATI and twitchy drivers and I told myself I will not play the "I'm going to wait till the next coolest thing comes out"

I buy what is the best for me at the time and use it for 3-4 years. So I get my moneys worth. I have had a computer since 1997 and this one I am building is only my fourth. I bought one, bought the second and modded it and built my third. By doing it this way I feel I can have the best or close to it every 4 years instead of having mid-range every 6 months to a year. But that's just me.

Twitchy drivers? You must have been a victim of the X800 series because the X1000's drivers are A LOT better and my friend uses them and he has ZERO problems with them. Of course they aren't as good as nvidia's but the performance gain kicks the 7800GTX 512MB right in the nuts.
