not to counterdict pharoah at all, I have the evga 7950GT KO in my system with an e6400 C2D and it is awesome, plain and simple. It does get up to 80C playing FarCry on the stock heatsink, however, so if you get the XFX with higher clock rates, get an aftermarket cooler or else you're going to cook it!

(evga 7950GT KO Superclocked and evga 7950GT KO are the same cards. They were called by one name when they first came out and then adopted the other...)

Just realized that my ecs motherboard doesnt support my ram, it only goes up to 667 mhz i believe and my ram is 800 mhz. Can you guys find me a good mother board to fit everything in? I went to fry's the other day and no luck. It would be nice if its sold online from a trusted dealer.

and btw, what kind of cooling product would u recommend, i might go with the XFX GeForce 7950 GT XXX / 512MB GDDR3 / SLI / PCI Express / Dual DVI / HDTV / TV Capture / Video Card
