Next Friday will be the next upgrade day. I will have around 300-400USD or so to spend. Top option: Auzen X-fi Prelude will be around 260USD. I just sold my X-Fi and had to go back to onboard. Which I totaly hate this is my top pick. 2ed option: All out Dander Den water cooling for Video card. D44ve is sending me a block and 175 Watt TEC for my X1950XTX but I will need a pump and rad. for this project. I might do this anyway no matter what on top of any other upgrade. 3ed option: 2ed video card X1950XTX or X1950CF card. Or I might wait and get the x2900XT and use my x1950XTX for physics.(When the driver comes it will work and I will be ready) 4th option: another 2 gigs of 8500 putting me up to 4 gigs and windows Vista 64bit. 5th option: what do you guys think?
