You would probably benifit from getting one of these cards, as an economy upgrade. I will MAKE the system fit the card, if need be. ATI recommends as much to reviewers, as well. In many cases, that means we’ve limited our testing to x resolution in bit color, with and without 4X edge radeln and 8X anisotropic texture filtering.

Winning isn’t that big of a deal to him, but doing what he wants to do for either a company he wants to work aic Blizzardor for himself is. I am biased, it is true, but he really is that good. But it’s not in stock, and your son asked for an ATI card, so it’s a difficult call to make.
