Post subject: need opinions...

-S-

If you were shopping for a new video card..what would you get and why, the GForce GTX 295 ( with its big memory interface ) or the ATI Radion 4870 X2. Also..anybody have the new AMD Phenom II X4 955 cpu ?, its AM3 but can run AM2 as well. Hoping to upgrade the system and want to know if any compatable issues, I have read about the bias problems with the new AMD 955 cpu and the 940 is an option, cheaper too.

Bit of research required here Young Hammer m'lad, but THIS may be of use.

Always use Tom's when I'm comparing hardware.
