The 3870 is definitely the only card to get 2nd to the 8800GT.

Yes, I would also get the 3870.

Sorry to threadjack, but i am wondering if changing to a 3850 from the 1950PRO with my setup (in sig) would provide noticeable performance boosts in games?

Probably. Right now your vid card is definately the bottleneck in your system.

yes, you would....but I'd recommend waiting a bit and picking up a 3870 or 8800GT.

im going with the 3850+3870 xfire thing, cause the 3850's are cheap and their in stock. so once the 3870's come in stock im picking one of those up and laughing at people in game.

That was because of the fact that only one of the cores would be doing the majority (if not all) the work while the other one did nothing and if you didn't notice the 7950 was two pcb's slapped together and only goes through one Pci-e slot.

And I cant seem to find a 8800Gt either, seems like I am going to have a wait a bit or might have a look at the GTS revision that should be coming up soon.
