This is what im considering, What is your opinion ? Zotac GeForce 9800 GT 1GB GDDR3 PCIe Graphics Card SLI x2 or a single card of the 3 listed, Diamond Multimedia Radeon 5770 1024MB GDDR5 PCIe 2.0 Graphics Card, Diamond Multimedia Viper HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 XOC Black Edition PCIe Graphics Card, BFG GeForce® GTX 260 OC MAXCORE 55 896MB GDDR3 PCIe 2.0 Graphics Card. They are all in my price range(200)at local store (Microcenter) I am not partial to any brand just want best Graphics on my screen. Do alot of gaming,movie,multimedia apps. mostly on acer 22" but sometimes Dual 22" Have i7 920,Asus p6t,Dominator 6GB DDR3-1600,Xion1100wpsu.

acording to this article:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/best-graphics-card,review...
the best value for $200 is the hd 4890
and the best at $250 is two gts 250s or two hd 4850s

also supposedly in less than 2 weeks (around jan 25th) the hd 5830 will come out that should be as good as a 4890 but with dx11 and stuff. priced around $200.

Generally single card setups are better than multiple... you lose some power in the sli/crossfire process.

I think your best option is to wait a couple days and get a 5830 when they come out. It will run a lot cooler than the 4890 and have DX 11.

Thank you and since everything is brand new in box, I think I will take the advice to wait and do it right get the 5830 orwho knows budget might grow by then. Just so eager to play with the new rig Im on oc E8400 right now want more. Can't wait so thanks again for your help.
