This was the best thing stated in the whole article.

When it comes to upgrading your computer, remember to build evenly-- there's no point in spending $1200 on a pair of video cards if you're still using a $300 monitor.

Regardless of benchmarks, looks like both cards work about equally, and most people would never even be able to tell the difference.

$300 for a monitor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ZOMFG thats $50 more than how much I payed for my last video card, he's talking about LCD's right, not CRT's?

if you can find an lcd that does 2048 for 300$ then by all means lol.

300$ monitors usually don't cut it.

what you're looking for is a 24" CRT or equivalent LCD (low-response).

I'd take an X1900XTX. One single card will be enough for me. Too bad those are still too frigging expensive $600 for one? (I do mean the one from ATI itself), heck I just bought 4 new tires for my truck and I only spent $560 (Bridgetone Dueler AT evo).

Let CrossFire mature a little more and expect it to be better than SLI, specially now that ATI gives CF support to Intel chipsets, I can't wait to see CrossFire + Conroe.
