I would sya if money isn't an object, get 1 x1950XTX, and have an amzing single card solution to hold you over until DX10 matures. I would be wary of buying DX10 as soon as it comes out, so I would say 1 amazing card from this generation will get you by until not only the prices drop but the tech matures as well.

DX10 is still kinda far off, might as well get a 7800GT/7900GS they are going for around $150~$210

Crossfire. Despite the fact DX10 cards will be out soon..they are indeed premature. I wouldn't recommend getting one of the first wave cards and wait till they improve them.

I was in the same quandry about a kickass card now, or get something decent for the time being & wait it out for DX10. I agree with pow3rtr1p for the most part... DX10 is a ways off yet, and I really don't trust the first generation of anything right away.

Get yourself something that will do the job well without breaking the bank, and wait 'till DX10 gets mainstream, and the bugs get sorted out before diving right in & getting a high dollar DX10 card or cards.

And selectodude, there is no need for that kind of attitude here. People don't come to OC.net for a condecending, pissy response.

ok thanks guys , think i will go with a x1950 , if santa is good to me , and the wife dont mind , another x1950 to go cross fire , should tide me over for over a year eh? also should still get a good price selling the cards after a year....
do the 1950 still require a slave and master card?
also guys the usa prices seems far cheaper than uk prices , is importing a card a good idea? to the uk , has anyone done this?
a 1950 over here is about £330 so about $650
