I was wondering for a gamer would this SAPPHIRE 100281-3SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity Be better or equal to this XFX HD-597A-CNF9 RADEON HD 5970 PCI-E 2.0 X16 2GB DDR5 GRAPHICS ADAPTER - 2560 X 1600, 2X DVI-I VIDEO (DUAL-LINK), HDCP SUPPORT, 1X DISPLAYPORT DIGITAL VIDEO - BLACK EDITION
cost would be an issue when getting the black edition since my original choice was the sapphire is the extra $200 worth it?
I have those speakers. They're good, and surprisingly bassy for a 5.25" sub. I can tell you I noticed a very big difference in sound quality with them going from mobo sound (Asus P7P55D Pro) to a dedicated sound card (AuzenTech Bravura). You should definitely consider getting a sound card if you want those to sound sexcellent.
