go with the ati radeon x1900xt, if you have $700 to spend. 700 is a LOT, the 1900xt witll last you wayyyy more than 2-3 years, and its only $530 at newegg...its a great card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814195002

Yeah 700, is a nice budget for video cards. I realy think you should go with the SLI 7800's just make sure you have a good enough psu, might have to get another one most sli configs need a lot of power

i wouldnt sli 2 7800gts because im not sure that would be as good as an ati x1900xt, i would go with the 1900xt since its cheaper and that card kicks ass...oh and make sure u have a pci-e slot before u buy

i know, if i were you i'd buy a 6800gs, and a new processor. what are the rest of your specs? you'll need some good cooling to sli 2 7800's together, and not to mention a good power unit.
