I would get the X1900XT for better IQ (image quality), and it's cheaper and there isn't a shortage. AAA, HDR + AA, and HQAF makes up for the couple of frames that the 7900GTX has over the X1900XT. And the X1900XT performs better in some cases. I want to see some Oblivion benchmarks.

In your case I would go for this:

The DFI Lanparty Ultra-D is a great motherboard, but if you don't plan
on overclocking the MSI Neo4-f (the one in the link) is a very solid motherboard. It can overclock decent to if you ever wanted to do so. It's BIOS is more simple then the Lanparty's. It also has more PCI slots, which is always useful.

yeah if ur not overclocking go with the MSI. I'd also suggest the 7900 GTX, preferablly eVGA. And you have a $2000 budget for just a motherboard and video card? or any other parts you need?
