My System Specs


The GTS only has 32 shaders meaning it has no grunt. They have a 128-bit memory bus that will choke them at resolutions of 1280X1024 or higher. The GT and GS only have 16 shaders making them useless for gaming. Considering there are not even any DX10 games/apps out, they are a HUGE waste of coin and I'd wait for the next gen atleast before buying a DX10 card.

Right now, the X1950 PRO is the best budget DX9 card with power with the 7900GS right behind it. It really matters what company you want more since they are close to equal in performance.

EDIT: changed DX10 to DX9, sswilson's quote reflects my lack of paying attention, LOL!
NEW (to me) Intel DQ67SW/I7 2600/12GB DDR3/Gigabyte HD5830 1GB/2X150GB VR HD's/ASUS Xonar D1

HTPC: Dell 960 SFF Q9550/8GB DDR2/R7 250 2GB/128GB SSD/2TB HDD
