Is this going to change anything in the future that will make upgrading my comp in the future like the situation I am in now? Or do the ATI use the same type of slots/sockets?

ATI are CPU or video cards?

Isn't that what Radion does also? Crossfire I mean?

2 7800 GT would be better than 2 1800 XL/XTs right?

well, i fyou can find a motherbaord that supports crossfire, get the 2 1800 XT's, they are much better then the 7800 GT's or even the 700 GTX's, but, you may need to buy the motherbaord from a differnt web site, try www.newegg.com or www.pricewatch.com


[EDIT] i found this motherboard at newegg.com, if you get that mother baord, get 2 XT's i'd recomend

thats the current top of the line nVidia card, but, you don't wanna get that motherbaord i points out to you? i mean, 2 GTX's are great too, but not as good as the 1800 XT's, also the 1800 XT's also have ones with 512 mb on onboard RAM

Well, I think I will be good with the top of the line Nvidia card, even with just 1 of them for along time, and when it goes out of date(like 3-5 years?), then I can always get a new one.

It would be the same for the Radion I would believe too. :tazz:

Technology wise everything out of date pretty fast, right?
