Thanks for the help guys. Will probably take a look into the 6950 2GB. With the configuration of components so far if decided i run dual monitors with the 2GB 6950 would things run smooth if I were playing a game on one monitor and the other monitor had live NFL score board updates or downloading music from itunes. Would gaming become choppy because of muti-tasking?
