Well, the second one is. And actually I combined the two, and it looks way better, IMO.

Here look:

If DX10 isnt out yet, how could you have a SS with it running a game?

^ The same way they run Crysis at E3. It exists, it just hasn't been released yet.

i agree

very, VERY well picked on that screenshot General. the biggest problem with the second screenshot is that water with that much disturbance and that colour certainly does not reflect an image from that distance and that clear. true it could be a problem with the mythical DX10 renderer but i think it's more likely just faked

here is how things in hardware goes..

lets say you upgrade now.. get a $500 vid card, afue months down the track that card will go from $500 to $200.. Now I'm not saying that $500 will be bad in afue months, ****.. I was using a geforce 2 mx 440 for 5 years!..

Anytime is a good time to upgrade, but I must say.. for overall, parts are cheap.. and there wont be any new major price crippling things coming out for a while.

If you got the money e6300 conroe or x2 3800 with some ddr2 ram. Requires different mobo. skt 775 conroe mobos seem expensive but there are cheaper mobos for th am2 (dfi has one out, cheap and not bad).
