ah... I don't care what anyone says. I'm buying the 7900GTX regardless of how many pixel pipes it has, if it's only 655Mhz core or it comes out in pink color only... May-be the X1900XTX will out perform the 7900GTX in some benchmarks... oh well.

When the DX10 / G80 cards come out... by then the price of the 7900GTX's will have dropped a bit and i'll pick up another and use my ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe to it's fullest... muwahahaha....<----Drools...

Remember there is a big issue with DX10 and Windows Vista. You can get a 7900GTX, but when Vista is released, you will be stuck playing your games in emulated DX9 which will provide lower image quality and much worse performance than if you waited for the G80. We are at the end of the Windows XP era, so now is a difficult time if you want to build a PC that will last you a while.

The 7900GTX is a good card though and should play UT2007 without a problem with at least a 1280x1024 resolution, if you have the 512MB version.

I don't see it as an issue right now. VISTA has been pushed back until the 4th quarter 2006, at least... Could be longer. Then you have to wait until game developers adopt DX10. Then you have to wait until those DX10 games are released and DX10 compatible cards are available. So what are we looking at??? 12-14+ months? By then i'll be building a whole new PC anyway...

No, my current build will be strictly for gaming... specifically for UT2007, ES:Oblivion and i'll continue playing BF2.

a pair of 7900GTX's in SLI and toss a new Ageia Physix card, which ASUS has ready for the market, but is waiting for some software to be released..

na... i'm not waiting... i'll be fragin' the living crap outta your guys at uber FPS while your crying cause your systems are eating my dust... (Joking - Everyone relax)
