I'd also recommend ATi. I had an ATi 9800... god... those were the times.

Anyways, go ATi or Sapphire or MSI. I don't trust Powercolor that much.

If you can, get the HIS IceQ3, the cooler they installed is amazing... Its like half as loud and cools a lot better.

Yea, IceQ3's are nice.

if u wanna wait the x1950xtx comes out september 14 i believe.
at this time the x1900xtx prices should drop(or so i read sumwhere)

i usually hear good things about sapphire and often bad things about powercolor(i havn't used either though) and i dont know about ATI coz 4 sum reason they dont sell them in Aus.

Then why not wait for next-gen cards?

If you have to get one now, definately the ICEQ3 as the aftermarket cooler is a much better solution than the designed by ati cooler that most companies use.

I've had 3 Saphire cards and all have been flawless. the ATI version of the same card will typically cost more. But yes, with DX10 cards arriving in 4 months do you really want to buy a high end card now?

Since the new cards are arriving september 14th, whats a good card that can satify my games graphic needs. I saw the Saphirre 100150L x1900xtx for $329.

I want to get my system up and running but I dont want it to bottleneck at the graphics plus I can't wait till september 14th, I go back to work in 10 days

Games I play: Civ IV, Sim2 and expansions, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, Star Wars Empires at War, SImcity 4, 18 wheels of steel and Flight Simulator X when it comes out. I dont play Doom or any other first person shooters.
