    Actually, if you are going for the 8800GTS 320MB then forget it (that is if you have not bought the card already). The ATI HD2900 PRO is what hot right now. You can get a 1GB GDDR4 card for ~$330 or a 512MB GDDR3 card for about $280. Check it out. From what i head these card come really close to the performance of the HD2900XT and surpass the 8800GTS 320MB in performance.

    Think Before You Buy

    Hes right, the 2900Pro is real good, except for the driver issues they have. The 2900XT 1GB Version is very close to performing like an 8800GTX, and it costs way less.

    Ummm.. I'm pretty sure I read a review somewhere that put Crossfire 1GB HD2900s against a single 8800gtx ultra.. and the ATI cards got beat. Nvidia fanboy all the way.

    OK. You made your point. Im not talking about the GTX card. Now am I? And no it does not come close the GTX in performance since not event the HD2900XT beats it in performance. However, it can take out the GTS cards and this particular card can and does take out the 320mb version of the GTS card.

    Man, video card fanboys are retarded. Just because nVidia has a heads up on ATI does not mean ATI cards suck. ATI was king of the DX9 generation. And now nVidia is the current king of the DX10 generation.

    Not everybody is going to dish out $600 for an overclocked GTX.

    That and there's no such thing as an 8800GTX Ultra.
    That PSU will do fine.

    Yeah, you probably did, but compared 1 to 1, the ultra does beat it, and it is the best gpu out there in the world right now... But it also costs the most money...

    @Overlord, you'll be more than fine with that PSU, I have a 8800gts card running on a seasonic s12-430 psu and have no problems what so ever. I might be pushing it alittle, but the psu fan never seems to ramp up or get overly hot.
