  1. What Rig you got, and what monitor? At hi res 1gb card's scale better.
  2. its a Rig i built myself so here are the specs

    AMD Phenom x4 9950 black edition
    ASUS M3A78-T Mobo
    samsung hd200hj 200GB
    I dont have a graphics card as i had to sel it to change to xfire x but i do use the onboard HD3300 Graphics

    and i usually FSX, world in conflict, call of duty 5 and far cry 2
    I hav a set resulution at 1440 x 900 on a Packard bell 19" wide screen monitor (dont know the model nomber but i think it is part of the Maestro 190w series)
  3. Yeah but i plan to run a T620 SyncMaster on the highst resolution and how would my prosessor bottlenekck that or put it this way what prosessor wouldnt bottleneck that?
  4. My point exactly. That why i asked about your rig and monitor in first place :). even with one card, like the 4890 your cpu will bottleneck, over clocking can help but not 4 the 2/3 card solution. Most of the ppl manage with way less than that....you will do just fine :).
