I've finally decided that my athlon xp rig just isn't cutting it anymore so i'm going to upgrade. I just wanted to see what you guys thought of what i had decided on and wether you think something else might be better.
for the video card i'm really not sure if i should get a good card now or wait for DX10 cards. any thoughts? i don't want it to be to expensive (around $300 CAD) if i'm going to be getting a DX10 card when they come out. I was thinking something like a 7900GS for now and a DX10 card later or a X1900XTX now and forget DX10 later.
All the other parts are coming from my current system.
Athlon XP 2700+ OC'd to 2.5GHz Asus A7N8X Deluxe 1GB Kingston dual channel ram BFG 6600GT OC Seagate 320GB 7200.10 SATAII HDD Pioneer DVD-RW Enermax Liberty 500W PSU
total cost excluding the video card $842.00 CAD or $751.00 USD

Look at the X1900XT 256.. its around $240 USD. It will smoke at 7900GS. Forget the XTX.. its overpriced.
