That is a great choice. People are very, very happy with it. Be sure your card can handle a 1280x1024 resolution, which means you need at minimum a 7800GT. You will want to add a second 7800GT when Oblivion and UT2007 come out to keep playing at 1280x1024.

You should be good.

I cant wait until Oblivion comes out, I just hope the 7900 is out before it.

It will, part of the reason for the game's delay is they are waiting on the 7900 so a card is out that can play it on high settings.

No they arent waiting for the 7900 to come out, fool, they are optimizing the games A.I. a 6800gs/7800gt will easily play the game on high.

Once again, you have obviously been rich all of your life and think what you have is the best and everyone else has it and can afford it. A 6800gs/6600gt will handle 1280x1024 in games fine.


--- And don't spend 400$ on a stupid 19'' LCD for crying out loud, there are 320$ ones that are JUST as good.
