Everything set to max settings, the 512gts is an awesome card.

Yes its dx9, vista annoys me too much. I've had too many issues to bother switching to it permanently.

btw, my 680i got delivered to the leasing office tonight, so i'll be rebuilding tomorrow and rebenching everything.

Ya i'm dual booting right now, but vista just keeps giving me too many reasons to NOT use it. With my a1 board i can use 3 video cards, 2 nvidia, 1 ati and have sli enabled while using the third card to display my 2nd monitor, vista doesnt allow that, so until that works i'll be sicking with xp.

Hey NosBoost300, do you get 50-60 FPS with that 8800GTX at 1900 X 1200

If that GTS can do what he says....then I want one....i just don't want to get one then find out it wont run 40FPS at 1600 X 1200
