ok, i have the x1950 pro but i waa thinking of upgrading i play games at 1680 by 1050 and i get about 30 frames a seconf 4x aa and 8x af. i was wondering if i would see alot of improvemnet i went with the 8800 gts, or the x1950 pro crossfire? would should i do? as im thinking is there any point of getting 3 monitors? as a result i will need 2 gfx cards. 2x 22" monitors and a lcd tv.
the 7950gx2 driver support is hopeless to say the least. Personally i would stay well away from it.
As for the 8800gts make, get whichever offers the best warranty and price.
Think about this: The x1950XT is a much better card than the x1950Pro and cheaper than the 8800GTS This should tie you over until the native DX10 games & cards come out (within a year) 3 monitors? Don't know much about that.
I have two monitors. A 22inch and a 17inch running at their native res off one 7600gt. The only thing I use the17 for is temp monitoring and occassionally MSN. But thats it. I am thinking of removing it. Of course if I could figure out how to get some games to run on the second monitor (ie Warcraft, Aoe2, older games) that would be sweet.
