    Hi, well I post here because of my concern of the possibility of buying the new Ati HD2900XT card, Ive read the reviews at Toms Hardware, and well I think is worth buying, before I go any further here are my system specs:

    Intel E6600@2.4GHZ
    2gb DDR2-800 Corsair
    Ati Radeon X1900XT 256mb (Sapphire)
    Asus P5W DH Deluxe
    X-FI Xtreme music sound card
    1WD Raptor 74Gb 10000rpm
    Plextor 760a DVD Burner

    So I asked a friend for counsil, he told me that it was better to wait for a little more development of the DirectX10 Market, and waiting for the possibilities of better cards from both Nvidia and ATI in the short term. So my main concern is:

    With my system specs it is worth buying a HD2900XT, or should I wait a little more before buying the card, and getting a much better GPU in the short term future?

    PD: Because I live out of the US, If I pass the oppurtunity to buy this card right now, Ill have to wait until october or december to be able to buy it again.
