What new tech should i be aware of? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
AMD's 7XXX series should just be a die shrink, so go with the 6950. There will ALWAYS be new tech on the horizon, might as well get the best performance/$ you can get now, and be happy with it till you feel the need to upgrade components one by one. Be sure to get an SSD though, the premium per Gb is worth it. Install the OS and frequently used programs on it, and watch it fly

I probably won't do that but we'll see. I don't see the point in 2 graphics cards. Don't get me started on why, we'll be here all day.

Might as well go big or go home.

The only games I will be playing are CSS, SC2, Portal 2 and Skyrim. I'm sure that a 6950 should be able to handle all 4 comfortably.
