Thanks guys, I was actually going to buy an XTX tomorrow or the next day until I saw this post
I actually want to run crossfire, I do have an SLI motherboard though. I've heard rumors that you can or will be able to run ATI on SLI motherboards. I am shortly getting a P5N32-SLI Deluxe. I am of the mindset that if I spend $900 on something (AUS$, ie x1900XT) and sell it within 6 months, it works out pretty well- I call it renting..sometimes if I've bought the product cheap I'll even make money on it later, lol
Can anyone confirm/ deny these allegations?
re: watercooling.. someone posted recently that GPU's dont benefit as much as CPU's from watercooling, but when my tai chi comes next week I will be cooling with with water
re: gaming @ 30 FPS..TV is a constant 24 FPS framerate, we dont notice the frames, never a huge jump... but when you see it fluctuating between 14 and 50 when you are in fights or scrolling around large area's of the map.. so yes, if the game could constantly stay at 30, then it would more than likely be highly playable .. but 30 average is a completely different kettle of fish.
Anyway im practically in the same boat, just other side of the world..
Any advice aswell - I was looking at a sapphire, but they seem cheap, I wanted to maybe go a gigabyte.. so any advice on which brand to go for would be most appreciated!!
