No. Waste of money.

Also don't ever get ATI.. what a waste of money. It doesn't even come close.

Nah, i will stick with the nVidia 7800GTXs. They are just like the RSX wafer design of the PS3s GPU. They are low heat running and streamlined because they use R5 silicon fabs, and needless to say, their texture engine is better suited for photoshop and flash and 3DMax Studio and gaming with new age graphics. Crossfire is impressive, but not enough to sway me to ATi, which tends to run at higher temps because of their R3 wafer and interconnect designs.

Dude, this is what the market says. ATI does not have an upper hand. And yes current cards can compete with ones that are already out. You can't just say it doesn't. That's why companies release newer better products.

OK, BTW... my goal with this PC is to get the world record on 3DMARK05 and AquaMark3! Not just for the heck of it. That is my goal. That is why I am doing this. It is a longtime unrealized goal that I need to fulfill, and I plan on doing it.
