    new video card time. opinions needed!

    I'm going to need 2 new SLI video cards. Currently i'm running 2 7900 gts. I'd like to get some new stuff. Budget is about 500 bucks for both. who's got some ideas for me?

    i was thinking these. - Buy EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 260 Core 216 SC 55NM 626MHZ 896MB 2.1GHZ DDR3 PCI-E 2XDVI-I HDTV Out Video Card - 896-P3-1257-AR In Canada.

    GTX260's are stonking cards! I'd say you're right on with them. Can't do much research on prices though since I'm on my phone

    +1 for gtx 260's, I've got one and it's been nothing but gravy. If you've got two in SLI I'm sure your computer will go like a frog in a sock, or two frogs in a sock as the case may be. The only thing I've heard is avoid the factory overlocked version of the 260 as they have driver issues or some such thing. If you can find a decent price, you may be able to swing 2 x gtx275 which is the card between the 260 and the 285.

    I've been an nVidia lover for awhile now. ATI drivers have kinda sucked for awhile, IMO. It also helps that nVidia under Linux is much better. Since I dual boot, that's important.
