If you're in web development, have you considered the Quadro series instead? They can run far higher resolutions and might be more up your alley. Just a thought...

Here's a Quadro for $500 that will run 3840x2400 resolution. No gaming video card could touch that

That is a nice card. But i didnt want to spend that much on a card that is 4 or 5 generations old.

look at the price of this one. The one i actually did want.

I'll be driving a ferrari long before i spend that much on a gpu. I couldnt imagine what the 3dmark scores on that thing would be like.

also DX10 played big part in me choosing to buy the cheaper gaming card opposed to a workstation card.

3DMark scores wouldn't be good on it. They're not designed for gaming. Also, the clocks on it aren't very high. Btw, I've owned a Ferarri and I don't miss it. Once the newness is gone, you'd end up selling it.

So... Let me get this straight.
You have a 7900GTX, FX60(2.6GHz), and 4GB of RAM. But you don't game...

So, what is the point?

Windows only needs about 2GHz and 1GB of memory to run windows at full speed w/o a hitch, not to mention the fewer amount of programs you have you will run faster and have less a need for memory and speed.

You obviously aren't trying to get any world record overclock, because if you were you'd go D2OL, so, as I said what is the point?

You also aren't trying to get any good windows xp load times (not really nessecary) becuase if so you'd have more than just one raptor, and you aren't going for sound development or anything becuase if you were you'd have an X-Fi.

So what exactly are you trying to do?
