I just discovered that ATI came out with the X1000 series. LOL, Im late, I was thinking about getting a 6600GT, but now I have to rethink about it again, what a hassle.

Any advices? Should I get the 6600GT or something in the X1000 series?

As I said in your other post (please don't double post), The X1000 series hasn't really been out long enough to make a clear suggestion on that. Wait a little longer for reviews and check the forums about cards such as the X1600XT and X1800XL, and then make your decision. You don't want to do what I did...which was buy too soon and regret your decision.

No, i was able to sell it AND my 19" Samsung CRT, and I bought myself an LCD I occasionally miss my CRTs though, but the LCDs are better for health reasons.

I dont know when they will come out with lower priced geforce7 series and I dont really want to wait that long.

My guess is that in the X1000 series, the card that will have compareable proformance would be the X1600 XT

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2552&p=8

And Im taking a wild guess that X1600XT is not going to be cheap than 6600GT anytime soon, so there is no reason to wait.

Once again, Im just making guesses.
