that is so true. however i'm in australia. the govemant enjoys charging HUGE amounts of TAX for graphics cards and other computer goods. *sigh* sometimes i wish i lived in a country where pc parts come cheep. anyway, thankyou for your help. i think i'll go with the asus gtx 295
Might be worth popping into 'Aussie Corner'
to see if someone can point you in the direction of a good deal.
