HI All,

I found, what I think is an awesome deal, but wanted to get some feedback. I don't have any problems with waiting for rebates.

MSI RX1900XTX-VT2D512E Radeon X1900XTX 512MB ($426 -150 MIR = $276)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1681...

Here is the rest of my new build:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Windsor 2.0GHz Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor Model ADA3800IAA5CU - Retail ($152)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-2GBPK - Retail ($199)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1682...

EPoX EP-MF570SLI Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard (139)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

PSU (Already own this)
Antec Truecontrol 2.0 550 Watt
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

Trying to stay under $800 budget. I have everything else.

Does anyone see any other issues with this setup? Incompatibilities? Bottleneck?

Thanks!

Jim

Yea that price after the rebate is great for that x1900xtx. Just be prepared for the noise.

Awesome deal.

The noise won't be a problem unless the case doesn't have good airflow and the card gets so hot that it decides to crank up the fan speed.

Great deal for sure.

He already has Antec TruePower 550W, so he's fine.
