Except Oblivion's HDR you should be able to max everything and anything for.... quite a few years.

Cooling, you could get a Tuniq Tower + two Arctic Fan 12's [120mm], thats the best air cooling out there for the time being, if you'r into water cooling: www.petrastechshop.com .

why do i not see x-fi... and logitech z-5500's anywhere!! this is angering me!!

i think sounds is just as important, if not more important than graphics!! its what makes a scary game scary.. having the clarity of everything.. hearing the spooky **** behind you in a game.. an you turn around and nothings there.... then you turn back around and some huge thing is kicking your ***!!!!!

these 5500's paired up with the x-fi have spooked me out a million times.. whlie i was playing hl2 i thought i heard an actual can rattle behind me, so i physically turned around to see... thats how **** clear it is!

why don't you instead get 2 x1900xt instead of 2 7950.... change to a crossfire board... and with the lets say 600 saved dollars you could get an xfi and logitech z-5500's that would blow you away

Er, if I do that, will the computer still run as nicely as the setup is now? better? And if someone is willing to tell me what I would need to change precisely, like with links or whatever, I would be OK with adding the sound card and speakers... i do plan on listening to a fair bit of it at school. lol.

I'd do that in a second. Much better idea.

They are right in front of you, the mouse is on your right (or left if you're a weirdo ) and the keyboard is on the left. :beard:

x-fi http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102188

oh.. and yes, your computer will run extremely well, this will handle any game out there with ease for a good long while... and with crossfire you don't have to match cards... so you could get the r600 later on and match it with the x1900
