So which would you recommend and why? This would be in a normal mobo, no Sli or anything like that.

X1900 flogs the 7900 in most shader intensive games thanks to having 48 shader units (3 shader units per pipeline, 16 pipelines). Also looknig at benchmarks will help you decide witch card to get, as both cards will perform differently under different games.

Well, I guess this would be for games like Battle For Middle-Earth II, Oblivion, The Godfather, Call of Duty 2, Battlefield 2 and any other new games that are coming up.

AMD will win hands down anyway. Intel don't have a memory controller on there procesors, it's still on the chipset. This means that since AMD have a memory controller on there chips they have direct access to the system memory.

What is your budget anyway?.

Nothing really. I plan on getting the x1900xtx, Amd X2 4800, 2x1gb Pc 4000 ram and a mobo that can run all of this.

Now, thats a crossfire board, does that mean i have to buy a crossfire video card also?
Nup, you can run one card in there aswell. The good thing about that board is that if you want to add a crossfire edition card of the same card later it'll allow for a good upgrade when the price comes down (However you'll need a good psu for crossfire/SLI). Make sure you get a decent psu with your system.

Alright, thank you so much Overlord. Hopefully this helped some people out as well. You may close the topic if the mod feels like it, but if they do close it, they must do it in a funny way or they ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CLOSE THE TOPIC!
