Not everybody's rich, you know. It just doesn't make sense buying any high-end stuffs on launch date. I'd say he should settle with a current-gen card for a year or so until the next-gen mainstream comes out and/or prices drop on high-end and/or a refreshed high-end model comes out like how the 7900 replaced 7800.

I went SLI with my 7600's because I found someone selling one for less than $100. Otherwise, I would have gone with another card.

Umm, well keep in mind that the 7600GS will suck at high high resolutions due to the 128bit memory bus, along with slow memory clocks.

CRTs . I am going to get a 21 inch CRT at some stage soonish. You dont need to run a real high res with a CRT. But I guess higher res couldnt hurt if you are going to get a 27inch monitor.

People do play xbox 360 games on so called HD tvs that only have 1024x768 res and they are happy with the picture.

^^Yes you should be able to actually. It takes a lot to actually utilize SLi as far as resolution goes. I use a crossfire setup however mine monitor doesnt have a very high res. Its nice as I can max out all settings without a hitch.
