sup Taco,

I just shopped around for a new GPU. I was thinking between ATI HD 5830 and Nvdia GTX 460. I ended up with 460 becuz its more efficient on power consumption with more core/bandwith memory. My budget was about $240 though. Still I know I'm not the smartest around here when it comes to computers smile.gif

also ATI seems to be ahead as of now...

Odin,

You're right! The 460's do have a great performance and cost alot less than comp. ATI cards. I went with 2 over clocked 460's but the motherboard choices were limited for the 980 chipset. Would be nice if they would release the Asus Crosshair IV Extreme motherboard.
