so i orderd this - Buy XFX GeForce 9800GTX 675MHZ 512MB 2.2GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out Video Card - PVT98FYDF9 In Canada.
comes to 383$ and thats includign 2 day shiping for 15$ i should have it by wensday! i cant wait. il post up a full review of the card.

also quick question my power suply pci-e wire has a spliter on it so i have 4 pci-e plugs and 2 wires, do i use two plugs off one wire or do i use 2 seperate wires?

It it best to use two separate PCIE Plugs instead of a spilter.

Re: just orderd :D
Yes, I thought you ment it had only 2 PCIE connectors, but then had spilters to make 4.

Re: just orderd :D
there will be very little difference, but if you have two wires with two PCIE each, then you can use one on each wire and leave the other two hanging.

Re: just orderd :D
The GTX has two PCIE right? Put both in reguardless of overclocking or not.
