There are ssd's in most of the computers in my house. At work my computer doesn't have one and I find it intolerably slow. Same with my HTPC.

I say you wait for the bulldozer or buy a 6950 2 gb and try to mode in to a 6970 . A ssd will only boost your OS and some programs i owned one and in games i have the same thing no difference.We have the same mobo .Peace
How is mobo in OC ?I refer FSB.

I didn't mean he should get the 1GB version, sheesh... Do I really have to be THAT specific about something EVERYBODY knows about?

i gotta say nah to the 460. it would be 570 or 6950, and being 100$ cheaper the 6950 looks like a winner.
unlock that bad-boy and we'll be in business.
