Great card. If it's not bottlenecked by CPU or RAM, will run all games at max settings, without breaking a sweat.

hell ya! thats what i wanted to hear. now for the other aspects of the pc : 2 gigs ram in there now, and a 2.8 ghz dual processor pci sli mobo w/ pent D. are they compatible with that card to max my games out?

That's a nice PC there. All games (current) at max settings will fly.

I love this card. Great speed and stability. I have a 7900GT in my other rig and definetly the 7900GTX is boss.

I added a VGA cooler which you might consider doing if you want to overclock or run your system much cooler. The Zalman VF900 dropped my GPU load temps considerably (10-15 degrees).
Here a link to the VGA cooler I use:

its got some nasty looking heat sinks in there already to help out. are those added on or come stock? thanks for the link!

If you are referring to the blue heatsinks, they are packaged with the Zalman cooler. You will need them once you remove the massive stock cooler and its crappy putty like thermal compund. Just adding Artic Silver 5 alone will lower your temps.
