I have gotten my computer and i'm loving it. However, I still need to finish off my list by getting a few more things, new speakers (maybe a soundcard, but the mobo has onboard 7.1 I believe anyway) and a video card to replace this x300 that came with it.
Now, I still haven't exactly sold my old BFG 6800 gt yet, but I still need to try so I can at least relieve the burdon a little. My topic of debate here is based on the video card's capabilities, I am split between which card to get. I've read that both series perform about the same, give or take some performance in the tests done, but I don't know what video card to save up for in the end.
I'd be using the card most for the gaming factor, but I do some video editing here and there too so I'd be hoping that the next card I get will last me quite a while. Also, something else that has been on my mind, I have read something about dx10 and saw some kind of farcry movie saying new capabilities or something like that and have read that dx10 games would require dx10 cards unless you had some kind of software that would allow lower cards to play the game but at a big performance cost. If this is very close in the future, then by all means I can probably wait, but I don't know anymore information that that.
Would anybody have any recomendations that are possibly minimal to favoring a purchase just because of brand? Now i'd kind of prefer nvidia a little because I had a bad experience on my older dell with an x800 pro, but that was known problem for that series of dells so I am willing to get whatever will give me the greatest abilities on my new computer.
