Haha, Ownage, go to bed...

Just because you have speed doesn't mean that it's nescessarily the best thing. The more pipelines, the more efficient.

I agree with u, I could have never known that using google is such an impossible thing. (that's sarcasm if u didn't notice)

The faster the better. Call it biased, call it what you want. If it comes to speed ATI has it made. Talk about pixel pipelines and nVidia has it made.
My fx5700 has a faster core clock than stock 7800GTX cards have. But somehow I don't get the performance that a 7800GTX has. So yeah, it's not just speed that matters.

Might I add I am relatively new to all of this... and I dont want to spend like 600 dollars on a video card.... And I thought I saw a Dfi Crossfire mobo here.... http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...anufacture=DFI
And could someone explain why GT is better? Ya I know it has something to do with better chipset. And would 2 256mb cards on SLI or one good 512mb card be better?

I am new too this stuff too but from what I researched they are a very good brand. I am going with one for my new pc I am building. I am not sure know if I want to go with SLI. I may just get a good graphics card with 7800GTX or something like that. Or is it always good to have a mobo with SLI ?
