I have 6700
ATi 1950X (2 512's) in crossfire.
4 gig ram, I'm still on XP but Vista will need the 4.
650 will make it but keep the USB peripherals to a minimum. a 700-750w would be best.
I max out most everything, I don't have an AI traffic yet, that will eat FPS.
I have the Intel 975X board

ye i was thinking that 2 1950's would be betta than a 2900 for the same price, right ??

considering fsx doesnt need dx10 yet... or does it ?? 😕

ye i was looking at a 600w but might bump it upto 700w

If I bought it now I would either go to a cheap card until DX 10 comes out or go bust and get the DX 10 card now.
DX 10 will be out in the fall...or so they say.

Neither do I, someone else will be along for that.

Well... i can tell you that the board you chose is SLI, not Crossfire... so no dual 1950's for you! Either get Nvidia Cards (which I highly reccomend over ATI) or change the processor to an AM2 and you will have more choices of Crossfire boards.

That is the crossfire version of the same board that I have... and I have pushed this board to its max and it keeps on going.
