Well if ur interested in DX10, DX10 master cards wont work with the 1900XT, only X1900 series master cards. Its goin to take vista and DX10 some time to mature, so you could get the 1900XT and wait till late next year to get DX10 if you wanted (thats wut i'm doin) or get a cheap 7600GT, X1650Pro (comin out soon), or even just go a little cheaper and get a 1800XT.

And i have one question, why did you choose the ASUS mobo?

Yeah most likely im gona just wait so that video card should do just fine tell DX10 comes out or next years top ATI Cards are produced

Well ive allways herd good things about asus and to when i serched the mobos for socket 775 it was all Asus that mostly showd up. I also read reviews on all 3 asus 775 socket mobos and the one i picked allways held up in second place. Also the remote is a cool feature . Why? is that a bad choice?


Oh and also most boards use the same chipsets this foxconn board has the same as the Asus just the board layout is diffrent

i was just wonderin, its pretty expensive compared to the DFI Infinity 975X and the MSI 975X. Fugger (from XS) started with a MSI 975X and a e6600 before conroes were released to the public and he got some good OC results with the MSI. But now that i look back at XS, alot of ppl are usin the ASUS and they're gettin nice OCs out of them.

Ahh yeah, the review was saying that my mobo choice is one of the best boards to OC on. So that was a nother reason for the choice and later on if i want to go wireless i can . But yeah most of the borads have the same chipset, and the Duel Gigabite LAN so its all down to quilty i guess. And its the most expensive so im hopeing its the best built if not ill return it lol

The asus boards are nice overclockers. I have a P5B deluxe Wifi and have my E6400 at 3.4ghz - I could pump it up to 3.6ghz but I'd have some heat issues I think.

Here are some other RAM options:

OCZ DDR2 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-6400 800MHz

OCZ DDR2 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-8000 / 1000MHz Gold Gamer eXtreme XTC Edition Dual Channel 5-6-6-15 OCZ2G10002GK (259.99 after rebate)

Well, if those are the games you'd like to play, then let me be the first to tell you that you'll be able to run all of those games at highest settings and resolutions with very nice FPS without Crossfire. A single 1900XTX or a 1950XTX will give you all you'd need for those games.
Especially with the other hardware you are planning on purchasing.

But, i might recommend waiting until after the new year for the DX10 cards, either the new R600's or the G80's.

yea R600 and G80 are lookin mighty powerful. G80 with its amazinly high clock and memory stuff, and R600 with the huge amounts of pixelpipelines and the 800mhz core clock. I'm an ATI fan so i'll probably be gettin ATIs DX10 card but i ahve to admit, that G80 was lookin mighty sweet too. But havock is right, you'll be able to play all those games on max settings with amazin FPS.
