    Well, I wanted the Quadro that cost 1.5k, but was deemed over budget. Have to get through vendors, since its grant money. The do not have the 7900GT

    hmm... since $1.3K is medium range, then what setup would be high-end and how much?
    There's like a semptron, opteron thingy, so confuuuusing.

    Dont need monitor, extra HDD, fancy mouse & fancy keyboard... lol, (the railgun & awp days are over)

    Just need SLI, >1GB RAM & stable. My Tbird still running fine on Win2K & later XP (touch wood) with no re-installs, BSODs so far.

    One question, do you need it urgently? If not, you might want to wait till the end of the year, since AMS is releasing their new chips soon. Its a different socket from the current 939.

    I think it means that PSU is tested for SLI setups. Anyway, the PSU comes with 2 additional power connectors for the graphic cards.

    Graphics cards change all the time. My 6800GS is only 6mths old & is considered outdated by some people. So it is a good idea to wait if you do not desperatly need a new system. Once you start feeling sluggish, go get ur new rig. Just do not do what some people do, the perpertual, 'Wait a while, something better will come soon'. You will never end up purchasing anything. You can also go the upgrade bit by bit way. Get a fancy case now, get a new soundcard two mths down the road, then the new moniter a while after that.

    3 weeks after I bought my Leadtek 7800GT, they released 7900GT.

    But I'll probably keep my card, wait for someone to sell theirs at low price. Kkakak.. then SLI.

    Yeah, am thinking of looking around for an 'old' 6800GS.
