Just one thought..how about an HD 3850 now and another later if you feel the need for more GPU ?

are you buying the d975bx2?

In reply to: ultimate gaming pc

if so, get a different mobo. they are not compatible with the new penryns (45nm core2). consider the msi p35 neo2-fr or gigabyte ga-p35-ds3 or abit ip35.

like vap said, dual radeon hd2600xt are more expensive than and won't match the performance of one radeon hd3850. the radeon hd3870/512mb and geforce 8800gt/256mb are about $50 more and perform even better.
