I was just makin a point..... sry..... i hate fanboy stuff but yet.... i'm a fanboy in ways (specially for ATI cuz i've had it all my life, then had 1 nvidia card and it just f***ed up my system).....but nobody's perfect..... But once again.... Either X1800XT or 7900GT, both are cheap, both will run on settings u want... and then upgrade to DX10 cards when they come out

ew 7950GX2, just get a X1900XT. better IQ. you can have 50 billion nvidia cards hooked up together and have the same IQ except for 32x AA which is just ridiculous lol. anyways i would rather get the x1900xt

Why do you want a new gpu if your just going to play BF2? I play it maxed out on 1280x1024 and get 90 fps. No point in buying a new gpu for bf2 IMO.

I think you shuold stop freakin making so much money and upgrading your SLi 7900GT's... are you going to upgrade every time a new video card comes out...

And why are you asking me if im serious, are you serious your giong to get rid of your SLI to upgrade to a 7900GTX/ a 7950GX2 so why are you asking me the same question?
