They are launching their 7900 line in march i believe. Its suppose to be a monster.

These new cards really are fit for people with huge monitors that need to run their games at insane resolutions. A 1800xt let alone a 1900xt can handle any game out right now up to 1600x1200 resolution.

With dx10 coming out next year i would get whatever you need now. The 1900xt will handle everything out today. Its a bit pricey but if you can swing it id get it, dont waste money on the xtx. The 7900 will be better, but then again it doesnt come out for a few months, and the 1900 can more than handle anything out now.

I plumped for the x1900 as I got it on a special offer when it came out. Very impressed with its speed, particularly in FEAR.
At a guess, the 7900 will be slightly quicker, but probably not by very much. Also, it's rumoured that the 7900 will be quite a bit more expensive than the x1900 at launch. If you're at all unsure, wait for the 7900 to come out, but I doubt you'll be unhappy with either of them

When you say requirement, do you mean power? If so, ATI recommend a 450W psu with 30A on the 12v rail.

hold off until the next gen cards with full dx10 support unless you really want a card right now. If the latter is the case and you plan on going single-card (as opposed to sli or crossfire) then buy the x1900xt 'cause its the fastest single card on the market right now. Nvidia is cooking up somethign good tho


edit: my bad here's a link (good price, awesome retailer, its in stock, and they ahve express shipping -- take the express shipping) http://www.us.ncix.com/products/inde...ture=Connect3D

I can't find any specs for a 460W Antec. Check in the manual or the PSU and see what the 12v rail is. If it's 30A or over it'll be fine.
