Just u 2 then.

here is how it works out:

last generation, ATI dominated with the 9200/9600/9800 series'

this generation, Nvidia is dominating

next generation, judging by the specs posted of the new cards posted, ATI looks like it has an edge

in the here and now, Nvidia is the king

judging by the specs, the R520 has that edge over the G70.

BTW, if ur a gamer, dual cores wont do anything for gamers

First of all, I apologize to Troubledyouth, for killing the spirit of his post. But it was in the spirit of a 6800 GT, w/ 500+ post users and one moderator involved, so I don't feel too bad.

second of alll, Trouble youth, that link you showed us was good. The evga should be alright; hopefully you'll have a better experience with Nvida than the Stupid kid. I personally think that your PSU will be just fine, but that 480 watt one will do ok too i think.

The nice thing about dual cores is that you can multitask taxing operations on your comp w/ almost no lag.

Stupid, at least your enjoying yourself. All you other people I think you should be ashamed of yourself. Yes, I do think he's a bit Stupid to be blaming just his Graphics card. Yes, I do think it's a bottleneck somewhere else. And the person who suggested where the 6800s GT go is being selfish. But you know, beggars can't be choosers and it's his stuff...but yea...Stupid, I can think of more evil and sadistic ways of getting rid of them.

Hope this post doesn't get me banned...
