The raptors can wait for me I guess till maybe dec or next year. I mean I want to go all out on graphics so I can skip the hard drives and go Crossfire all the way with a set of 1950's but then again then DX10 will help in the long run, just wish the price was a bit more low

Well, you could always buy the raptors now and buy the gfx cards later and stick with what you have for now on a video card. DX10 cards will be a lot because....its new tech. So now, its up to you on what to buy first. All you know for sure right now is that you're computer will be amazingly fast on games with both in your computer.

I know Im kinda confusing so.....tell me if youre confused.

His current PSU probably wouldnt be enough to power a G80. Those cards take 250-300W.

Something must have gone wrong, cause the X1950XTX should be quite a bit faster than a 7900GT.

If my PSU cant take it, I can replace that for a better PSU. My other question is if I get a G80 isint it ddr3 to ATI's ddr4 1950? will that have a impact on the dx10 coming soon ?

G80 would still be faster.


Also, I think his PSU could take it. If it couldnt it'd be by a little bit.

^^His PSU could never take a full load on a G80 in theory. Just get your Raptors and a X1950XTX for now. I would wait it out on a DX10 until its complete mainstream and all the bugs are kinked out. Plus I would also wait for new PSU's to come out to accomodate the new cards.
