    Yeah, I'm going to wait until a few more months until I get a Dx10 card, so I am going to grab a Dx9 card now. I was looking at something cheap, I don't need the best card out there, but something that can play Oblivion nicely would be great. I was thinking this case and PSU, and maybe a SATA HDD. Possibly this mobo and crossfire two 512mb x1650xt?

    Why spend the money on a card that you KNOW is going to have to be replaced in just a few months?

    Why not just wait a little bit longer and save your money?

    I'm going to wait and see if anymore Dx10 cards come out, and waiting for the 2950xt, lol. So I'm not going to buy a mid range Dx10 card now, I can wait until Christmas to get one, but I am looking for something below $200 for now.

    I think the reason the x1650s pwn in Oblivion is because all the individual things being rendered. I am still trying to decide what to get...

    Two of these maybe?

    I could buy one and the new case and PSU, then grab a second one later...

    hey you could/should try 1950pro maybe a 1900gt rev1 if you could find one on ebay or something.. for my card to play fear totally maxxed I needed to oc it more than it is now and that was with a 17" lcd.. it played Oblivion maxed (not with sliders maxxed though) very well.

    Are you in the USA? I'll concider selling my card I've been wanting to upgrade and may just grab a 8800gts for cheap.. I still have the original box/heatsink elc my max oc was 1.4vgpu 690core about 818ram but in a bios mod it seems to hold less oc than ati tool... so atm Im 1.35 (maybe 1.325) vgpu 654.5 core 780 ram.

    I dont think if I go for 1.4vgpu that I will be able to play those games or COH maxed with my new monitor.. as I was hopeing to.

    and I would sell my card for $100+ shipping.. its a rev.1 so it oc's good.

    Edit: send me a pm if your interested going afk.
