Man, some of these people mention there computer shops and it scares me on their business practices. Are half the people working in these places that damn retarded?

The X1900 series is no where near discontinued and dont let anybody tell you otherwise. If you want an X1900, then by all means, get yourself one.

I can vouch for that, if you want an ATI card, go get one. They aren't discontinued.

(I know you already said this Raven_87, but I just want to get the point across)

there a quite alot of shops in my area, however i have already purchased last mth my mobo asus m2n32 sli deluxe and it said on the box its better to use nvida chip sets, weather thats marketing hype or not..i just dont want to yake the chance of buying a high end card and not getting the max from it

Marketing hype, that is all it is. Nvidia chipsets work very well with ATI cards, you just can't use Crossfire with them.

But if you want to keep a dual card configuration open in the future, get an Nvidia card.

I's say get the GT, with DX10 coming soon buying a high-end doesn't really make sense, and the GT can handle basically anything out there (I know I have one).

i say get a 7600gt and save a couple of bucks since the DX10 is arround the corner so you can buy a DX10 card when it come's out.

Why? So he can turn around and buy a whole new operating system and GPU a couple of months after he bought all this? I'd say get a X1900 or 7900 series card, and give yourself more time for DX10 and Vista to mature.
