Can ASUA A8N-Sli run a 7950GX2 ? or the MSI Diamond plus is better ?
Is this the right time to purchase 7950GX2 ? or the 7900GT is enough ?

It depends. What are your system specs? How much gaming do you do, and what types of games (some require more horsepower than others). The main thing to think about right now is your future plans. DX10 cards will be out in 4-6 months and if you want to be the first on your block to have one, you shouldn't buy a top shelf card now. Although you can always sell it later and recoup some value, it may be better to just get a mid range card now. But to answer your question, in general the 7900GT is plenty strong, but the GX2 will last quite a while- as long as you don't feel the need to upgrade to DX10 right away. Or money isn't an issue.

I would say the 7950GX2 is a bad choice right now. 7900GT is a better choice. But if you play a t 1600x1200, then the 7950GX2 will perform better.

The 7950GX2 will serve you no purpose now. I say get the 7900GT, and save up money for the new widescreen, and a DX10 card.

No point in the 7950 GX2, unless you want bragging rights. On that small screen, the 7900GT will do just as well.

Are you planning on running SLI? If not, save some money and get a single PCI-E slot board.
