If it it should come back to bite us in the back side, I'll blame her..........checks over shoulder to make sure she is not watching me type this.

Neither of us are "hardcore" gamers, but we would like to finally be able to play with everything set higher than minimum for the video without sacrificing game play, at the same time trying to be as "future proofed" as one can be with computers (ie: not outdated the same week we take delivery :D
You aren't a hardcore gamer, but you're going for dual 4870s? Damn... Well, I did the same too! You'll be quite pleased with the cards, especially knowing that the drivers will get better.

Now, regarding that statement: "trying to be as "future proofed" as one can be with computers (ie: not outdated the same week we take delivery". Now, you do know that this will happen, right? It won't take a week, but it will happen...
