It's one of the best. Really a fantastic card. Expensive though.

The 7900GTX is one of the best cards you can get your hands on...but like most good things it comes at a price.

It's generally known as the best card out (well besides the 7950gx2). But it's not worth it as you can save a lot and get almost as good of performance. The x1900xt is almost as good and a way better value. The x1900xt and xtx will be good for upcoming shader intensive games.

What shader intensive games will be coming out?

Also, would you recommend x1900xt in crossfire over 1 x1900xtx?

Sorry, but i do not want to make another thread when I can put it all here

What are the 'best' / favoured ATI manufacturers? Perhaps the top5 from 1st - 5th?

For example, nvidia - 1- eVGA
2- Leadtek
3 -etc.
