i hear u. every few days there is something new to get, lol. but DX9 was out for so long that i think it would be wise to wait for DX10 at this stage. i could only assume that vista will require the full potential of a DX10 compatible card. it seems like the more powerful we could make a pc, microsoft will release an OS or patch to ensure performance degradation, lol. i hope vista will work properly with dual cores because XP pro corp hangs randomly when being used in a HT enabled machine. strangely enough it only hangs when loading mocrosoft programs like outlook etc.
i did not realise the 7600 was better than the 6800. i will check some benchmarks. the 7600 may be worth considering. but waiting for the G80 might also mean the price of the 7900 will drop
i dont really want to consider sli because it is expensive and it seems only necessary for when you have on 16x full screen AA. also i see that most regular sli boards drop both cards to 8X speed in sli mode and only recently there came to be true sli boards that allowed 16X speed on both cards. the performance might be impressive but i am not willing to pay that much money. lol.
