I'm good on GFX. Hell all I do is upload pics and post
I stuck with my 9600AIW until I finally went PCIe...then I hung onto my 1950pros for a long time...I sold them right when I got the HD3870X2s. I bought some 2900s for e-peen purposes...but I kept the 1950 pro for Folding and general use: so quiet. After I LCed the HD3870X2s I was completely satisfied...got rid of the case heat and the noise and no I really think they are perfect.
I have the third HD3870X2 in the Family HTPC rig and it's seriously loud (Folding GPU2) and hot and eventually I plan to LC that Rig. It runs the 52" LCD for gaming and theatre and does more than I need.
I like new hardware: but just don't have the fascination with graphics that I do with HDDs, SSDs and Fast RAM. I'm a Bandwidth Junky
