Well, the "deadline" for me ordering a new card was about 4:30 PM, today (it's 8:30PM now). I'm sick of using this 300MHz K6-2 that takes over 5 minutes to boot up & 10 minutes from power-on to 'net surfing. It is one slooow POS. I think the Athlon 64 3700+ will be a NICE improvement
As I said, I'll wait a bit until the money sitution improves and grab a 7800GT. Then this card can go into my 2nd system.
I decided that, since a) I wanted to save the most money possible, while still be able to actuall play the games I have, and b) since I already made my WinXP install cd (with drivers slipstreamed, and 465MB of crap removed), that I'd just get the eVGA 6600GT. It's good enough...especially until I get a better monitor (around the time I get the 7800GT).
Oh well. It was tempting to get the ATI card. Very much so. But, oh well. Maybe they'll come up with a good competitior to the 7800GT...
