The card's performance is among the top dogs at the moment, so yes. It should last until DX10 cards start showing up.

Yes you will have no troubles with the latest gamming software out there.

It get's me so depressed to see the price sub USD$300.00 as we are still looking at AUD$800.

The Nvidia cards weren't as fast in Oblivion as the Ati cards in the last reviews released. The SLI combos used to do better than Crossfire in Oblivion, but there was a new patch or driver release that gives Crossfire the best performance now. If you're buying a game based on Oblivion, Ati not only has better performance but can run HDR with AA on for better image quality as well.

ok well lets just say, would you like to buy the 289 dollar card, being the ATi, or spend 409 dollars on a 7800GTX to get the same preformance?
i ordered the exact same card ur questioning about after doing about a month's research on it, i can tell you, i found ALL positive reviews on it, only downside is the stock cooler is a tad on the loud side

Oblivion(Recent):
http://firingsquad.com/hardware/obli...ance/page4.asp
COD2-F.E.A.R.(Not sure):
http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...1935814,00.asp

The guy at my shop suggested me a 7900gt but looking at the benchmarks and prices...
289.99$-269.99$ for x1800xt
320-300$ for the 7900gt

Also heard ATI's image quality looked better than nvidia.

Does anyone know how much the extra 256mb helps this card? They want like $50 more for double memory and I was wondering if it's worth it...
