Ok i have a 19" WS monitor max res 1400x900.

I wish to play games at max eye candy, and i'm looking at building a new rig E6400, Gig 965P DS3, 2gb DDR2 800, 600w PSU.

I'm looking at paying around £200 tops although originally i was going to get a 1900XT for £215 but the prices have gone daft or cards gone exstinct.

With regards my monitor being 1400x900 what would be the best card to get:

7950, 7900GT,7900GS,7900GTO, 1900GT.

I dont want to waste money on something i dont need or wil not give me resuts at max settings.

I not interested in DX10, i want a good card now which wil last me a couple of years, then when DX10 is norm i will upgarde.

Since the 1900Xt are becoming hard to find i'm looking at 7900Gt for around £170-180 mark.

All advice much appreciated.

If you can find an X1900XT, then go for it (unless the price is too high)

The 7900GTO is an excellent card. Flash the BIOS + OC and it is an 7900GTX! It performs better than all of the other cards listed

I also say, X1900XT would be the best choice, 7900GTO if you can't get a good X1900XT price.

Problem I see with your res though is most games don't have native support for that resolution (nor widescreen really). You can force it different ways, but you end up with a cropped or stretched image.

Look at the guages in NFSMW...they should be round not ovals. 8O
