I watched the crysis movie a few days ago for the first time and their setup has it stuttering now and again.

-We are going to have to disagree here PP..When i had the X1950 FlatOut2 was beautiful (I know its not the most fancy game) but clearly nicer looking than the 7950 or the 7600GTs in SLI.

BUT!

the 7950 played it fine and ran MUCH cooler. My 7600GTs in SLI also played it fine used less power made even less heat.

The pair of 7600GTs really did kick the 7950s butt in the benches.

If I had all this to do over again I would have got ONLY the 7600GTs and been happy till they sorted out the DX10 games/drivers/cards.

Yea alot of games look better with my X1900XTX but i like using the 7950GT for Digital Vibrance, and that its Nvidia and it was a free card. I dont like seeing good cards sit there. When me and my gf broke up i took back my machine and gave her back her old one i made a while back. I didnt want to see good hardware go to waste.

I keep forgetting we got the 7950s for free...

Honestly I wish they would take the cool running of the 7950 and cross it with low power needs of 2 7600GTs and than cross that with the beautiful picture of the X1900 series...

now that would be a excellent card.

Mate seriously broaden your horizons. Nothing at all makes nVidia any more special than the next big company after your hard earned cash.

well said, i go for whatever is cheaper and puts out more frames with the best picture... nvid or ati doesnt matter

i dont get fanboys, buy a chip for the same price that isnt as good just cuz of the company?
