^I suggested the same. He's made regretful decisions in the past (erhm.. 2900PRO) and he's stubbornly ignoring our advice

edit// woah, fast response

Then get x2 8800GTS V2!! Seriously, slaughter the SLI-GTX and make a single Ultra look like a Voodoo1, and for less moneys

^^lol OUCH....the twin GTX's.
heh i had a 2900 also, it ran pretty much dead even (BM wise) with this 8800gt.
but, it was louder.
they perform the same. one just uses more power and has a hair dryer for a fan. lol. its a bad @$$ card though, make no mistake.

hahaha hey the pro was awesome....

i just want more!!! i just hope this 8800gts revision doesnt cream the crap out of it.. cuz if its on par.. i won't really care and an 8800gt overclocked can only be on par.. or a lil better than a gtx.... and i want more than just a gtx... i hope in time.. i do some volt mods on that gtx...

Mehn, if I can be patient while on this crap P4/TNT2 system, then you can just wait a little too. You'll save some cash.

Haha, this PC I'm running is so funny. It provides enough heat to make my room nice and warm for the cool Montreal winters we have here.

And I'd also wait to see what AMD has in store with Phenom, once we see some more conclusive benchmarks.
