*guilty* I've yet to review paper specs on the 4850x2. It looks like a good card. But if you're going for ATi, get the 4870 or the 4890.

Any of the cards listed in this thread are more than capable of doing what the OP needs and are vast improvement over his 8800GT.

Good point. But the real trick here is making it cheap, too.

Not the GTX 275. I'm fairly sure that pulls out ahead.
