Dump the ATi, that 260 will blow away that X1900.

You can run ATI and nVidia at the same time, but not like SLI or CFX, you'll see no gain, there is no reason to keep the ATI, especially that old.

Is that the rated speed for that Corsair?
I've always recommended Mushkin RAM.

that thing is a POS compaired to a GTX 260 you will have no benifts and just have to fight drivers to keep both.

Dual Channel Motherboard, So go for some 1600MHz or 1333 MHz Ram with nice low timings like Cas6 or Cas 7.

You can use it if you need to use additional monitors and the your primary card doesn't have enough ports, as in the case of using 3 monitors.
