It's timing out for me too, so I had to copy the link from another site. so I'm not 100% certain it's the right thread.

erm.. even a gtx260 or a 4870 can handle 1920x1200 just fine... heck.. an 8800gtx can still do it just fine... with of course.. the exception of crysis...

you will need a 4870x2... gtx280.. or gtx260 sli for that one...

but as far as ground-up builds, even the cheap intels are better (sic. "faster).
and this comes from the ex-AMD fanboy king (or prince, i should say....apok holds the crown).
hopefully the 45nm will be something to look at. if they fail like phenom, man o man intels are going to get expensive.
its so true, i had to give way to my urges to get a e2180 and overclock it like crazy, instead buying this 5000+ which is good still i guess, but only about the same o/c as everyone gets, i was hoping to get some kinda monster o/c on the intel.

it seems almost pointless to have watercooling for amd... its limits are easily reached by an aircooler for everyday use
