So I got the X1950XTX in cross fire, and I want a 8800GTX. I am guessing moust of you would say its just stupid to buy a 8800GTX then. Well I kinda want to be ready for DX10 and crysis. So howe stupid is it to buy a 8800GTX, in my case?:rolleyes:

You've got a great PC already, just keep it and wait for ATI to release their DX10 cards and for more to be made so they drop in price. I remember the 7800s being about $500 on Newegg when they were new, and now you can get the 7900 GT for $250.

Stick with the 1950 mate. Its future proof enough, You won't notice a difference. Its a waste of money. Its a great card, but if you already have the leading competitor, Whats the point? both will run pretty much all games for the next year on max settings.

Hell, your PC will be good for a long time with games. Don't bother upgrading to DX10 till ATI's cards are out and that prices fall considerably, even then your 1950's should still be quite capable.

I have to agree with the status quo here; upgrading would be kinda pointless, but if your intent on it. wate to see what the new ATI/AMD cards will be like... apprently they are suspose to rape the 8800GTX's
