Hey gang, I need your help/advice.
Looks like I might be looking at some extra cash and was thinking about (finally) getting me a proper GFX card again.
I'm currently running an ancient nVidia 7300 LE wuheeeee...... (not)
But it's a focking jungle out there.... and I'm sure some of you got your fingers on the hardware pulse.

So, what do I need?

Monitor support: 3. (DVI/VGA)
RAM: Enough to do some proper gaming. So at least 2GB.
Brand: I don't give rats ass..... As long...

Monitor 2: Neovo H-W22 (22")
Monitor 3: Neovo H-W19 (19")

2 GB GDDR3
DVI/HDMI (HDCP) HDTV out
(4 monitor outputs)


I'm looking for a 'highend-ish' card this time.

Opinions?
(It's going for around $380 over here)

I displayed my newly purchased ASUS Eee PC in the 'September Desktop Screenshot' thread, and was asked by ama02:

Snowman, I am considering getting an Asus Eee PC, one with XP, how do you like yours? Pros? Cons?

So I thought I'd give it a 'little' review, from an endusers perspective

I absolutey love it - at least for my use. I use it as a fancy pansy typewriter

Pros:
- Lightweight; You'll hardly notice it in your briefcase/bag. It weighs less than a pound (incl. battery)
- Size/d...
