Default Re: which video card?

First one - XFX PVT71UZDF9 Geforce 7950GX2 1GB 512-bit (256-bit x2) GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Xtreme Video Card - Retail

Second one - BFG Tech BFGR7950GX21GBE Geforce 7950GX2 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Dual GPU Video Card - Retail

That's what you want, second one is the best..

However, why not wait until some DirectX 10 cards come out..?

The first one, BFG doesn't have the greatest reputation when it comes to quality and that appears to be the only difference in the two cards (manufacturers). Other than that they are the exact same card. Go with XFX.
