Also, the radeon 1900XT was picked up there. I am an nvidia fanboy, so i was wondering what nvidia card I should get instead? Or if someone could show benchmarks or something where this 1900XT is better than other cards in my budget?

If you want to go nVidia, get a 7900GT

ok then, I think I will wait a while for the prices to go down, or get a conroe.


Do u know what would be better value for money when conroe comes out?

Also, will AMD motherboards also drop in price, or just the cpus?

to not get the x1900xt cuz you're an nVidia 'fanboy' is pretty lame.

well i have also heard of radeon cards overheating, breaking, not working, etc - and this is very uncommon for NVIDIA cards for me.

Right now, you can build a AMD Athlon X2 / SLI 7900GT KO Superclocks with 2gb of ramand a 250gb harddrive, everything else needed in the computer case, for 1300 bucks.

Just add another 7900GT KO Superclocked to the system I have here: http://techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=112853

Edit: EEK, you'll need a different mobo for SLI, shouldnt be much more. I'm thinking total it'd be like 1360.

OK, its just that ive seen some cards better in SLI than in single, and vise versa. Just wanted to know which one was right in the 7900GT in SLI and 7950GTX in single.
