ok so what if I go EVGA 8800GTS single card for now...

I can step up once the new cards come out correct? they just apply the previous purchase price to the new card right ?

Yep. And if you decide the new cards aren't worth it, 2 8800GTS 512mb in SLI is a very good combination.

hhhm tough decision... cuz a EVGA 8800GTS is about the same price as 2 9600GT

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N841-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
$215

vs
Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-96TES2P-FSP GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
or
Newegg.com - CHAINTECH GSE96GT GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
$120 x2 = 240

I'm not going any bigger than a 22'' monitor. and SLI 9600GT will probably play AoC on HIGHEST settings no problem correct ??? whats the point of one of the "new" cards then ??

Any Better deals you guys see out there??

THE ONLY thing I'm a bit weary of is that the NEW video cards are coming out soon... Would I see better performance from a SINGLE one of the new cards over my SLI 8800GT's ?? (for around the same price) If so I might just pick up a single EVGA 8800GTS and step up later...
Get a Seagate 7200.10 or 7200.11

If your going to SLI get 2 9600GT or 8800GT if not get a 8800GTS or just wait for the new cards

everything else is fine except the IDE

1 point.... its called Crysis

But thats on XP with that DX 10 hax

Like on Vista people can't do it with a GTS g92, but since I've never played it I wouldn't know, I've never played it...
