Yes, I was looking at those. Gamespot had a hands on article.

I want one. They said you can put 2 of them in your system, but it's kind of useless right now. But I plan on getting one since my PC isn't SLI enabled. One 7950 GX2 scores ever so slightly below 2 GeForce 7900 GTX SLI. Now I just need to save up $600.

They are badly timed at the mo you cant use them in sli if you are a builder, but with DX10 coming out soon you would have to be off your nut to get one.

One thing to think about though is the fact that everyone is complaining about the Playstation 3 being $600. They say $600 is too much for a game console. Well this video card alone is $600. Plus the cost of whatever else went into your PC. That's a lot of money. But whatever I still want one.

:blink: I just realized that I would also need to upgrade my power supply...
I think I'll just save up for a 7900 GT. I think my psu would be ok for a 7900 GT. I hope.

Yeah, I was just posting the news...

Personally I wouldnt buy the 7950 X2 either because warriorscot is right, its planned at the wrong time. New directx10 cards will be coming out soon and if you buy the 7950 x2 you will be S*it out of luck. (SOL) They are not compatable with dx10 and basically you are wasting your money for $600 minimum up to $750 since you cant use the new generation soon to come dx10 support on them.

I would advise: Creating a Restore Point prior to updating GPU drivers.

Lol Silj what a random post.

Not really :whistling: Setting an SR point prior to updating drivers is good practice, in the event that they fail.
BTDT...
