    This is the card i'm looking at, i don't want to get an uber card since im going to use the crossfire feature. But before i get it i wanted to make sure there isn't a better card someone could reccomend to me or if i overlooked something. Thanks for helping out.

    @LXIX, are you sure you have the budget and hardware to go Crossfire? Crossfire needs a hefty PSU and extra cooling, not to mention a monitor capable of running ultra-high resolutions which Crossfire is made for.
    As for the card, the X19xx series is a better pick, the PRO being the superior card to the GT. Both are the same really, but the PRO comes with better cooling and higher frequencies, so you can OC it further to around XT speeds.

    @LXIX, for $10 more than that X1650XT, you can get an X1950XT from Newegg that is vastly superior to the X1650XT and that too for a minimal price difference.
    @0mega9401, look here.

    Ohhh thanks for the tip, i've been reading that the ATI cards require a really good psu. that shouldn't be a problem for mine right. since i went out of the way to buy a good one, i didn't feel like skipping on my psu.
