Also keep in my that I'm currently on a 1280x1024 LCD, but a widescreen is likely in my near future, so the ability to run higher resolutions is important!
Buying a 7950gx2 would be a step backwards,imo. A 7950 is the same core as the 7900, but has the core and memory clocks lowered to deal with the heat problems that come with that card. Also, remember that you can't use aftermarket air cooling with those. Since you're not interested in the 8800 coming in 2 weeks, I'd say your only choice is to either buy another 7900gtx or to improve your cpu performance. Btw, Oblivion is one of the few games that actually makes Raid worthwhile. Loading quickly makes the game much more enjoyable, especially when you're zoning so often. It won't help with the actual gameplay, but it most definitely will shorten the loading/zoning times.
