ok im i little confused by the response. Sorry im having a brain fart.
I was thinking the Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and pair it up with a 7800GT or maybe a 7800GTX.
How will this handle games? High settings? Uber high settings?
Maybe ill get lucky and be able to afford the Saphire X1900XTX for about 500 bones, but i highly doubt it.
It gets so confusing trying to determine whether to go with dual core or not, SLI or not, etc....
I just want a rig that will play Everquest 2, FEAR, and whatever ridiculously power-consuming games come out in the next 12-18 months on uber high settings and all the eye candy turned up, without it being so choppy it makes me sea-sick.
Do i have to save even longer and get a 4400+ or whatever and an even better vid card? because if i have to i will, as much as that would blow.
Anyways, thanks in advance.
the 7800gt's are the same price as some 7900gt's I have seen so the 7900gt would be the better one to get between 7800gt vs 7900gt.
The 7800gtx is a fast card also..
the 7900gtx is better..
all of the 7900 series are out of stock right now at newegg..
I would say go with a 7900 series card because you can find great deals on the 7900gt, the 7900gtx is more expensive though..
You only need one video card, the ati x1900xtx would be fine also..
many decisions but my opinion you only need one fast card.
the amd 3800+ x2 dual core would be okay but I would go a step or 2 higher than it..
