To be honest, either a single 7600GT or a single 7900GT and wait for DX10. Just because you can now afford a card (and need one) doesn't mean you have to spend everything you have all of a sudden. And at the moment I really wouldn't reccomend SLI.

I would buy a fairy cheap card now too hold you over until the DX10 cards are realeased. That way your not blowing all your money on a high end card now, just to upgrade agian to DX10.

I say just get one 7600GT for now.

just out of curiosity. why do u say get a 7600gt. i know that it has faster clock speeds than the 7900gs.but does the 7900 having a 256bit memery bus make a difference. :P also its $10 cheaper lol oh yeh and will dx10 cards work on a skt 939 board...

Haha, find a new website...thats all I can say..... And the 7900GS is by far better then a 7600GT, it has 20pixel piplines, instead of 12. You should be able to find that 7600GT for around 175, and the 7900GS for around 200.

I didn't look at the links so i said the 7600 because i assumed it was the cheaper one. The 7900 is of course a better card, hands down. What i'm trying to say is buy a single, cheaper card now so you have money to upgrade to a good DX10 card in the near future.

Of course the DX10 cards will work on a S939 motherboard. Shit, a DX12 card could work on it as long as its Pci-Express you shouldn't have any issues at all.

I remember when toms hardware ran a Geforce Ti 4600 in a pentium 100, worked fine... and actually, if you have a 939 board with that opteron, it may be a wise choice to get a 7900GS now, and then in a year or two, upgrade to a new motherboard/processor/ram/video card.... but that is if you don't mind spending money....

Wait...it says you have a 7800GTX in your sig...do you? If you do, then it makes no sense at all to get a new card... Besides, the 7800GTX outpreforms both the 7600GT and 7900GS...
