    Yes, I'd like fries with that. Coke too please.

    When the next MP is released, any ideas on the next set of GPUs?

    Looking for recs along the lines of the X1900 (primarily video editing).

    Want to be able to order it ASA it's available. Any clues on HD disc capability?

    Given that it has 2 drives, if it doesn't come with a HD-DVD or BR burner, how difficult will it be to install one?

    The X1900XT will likely be replaced with something from the 8800 or 2900 series. It's possible it will be from the 9800 series or whatever is replacing the 2900 in november, but who knows.

    This thread might be of interest to you.

    It would be quite easy to install one. It would be like installing any other CD/DVD drive.

    It obviously wouldn't use IDE or SATA. :rolleyes:

    R670 and G8E (G92). <3

    Huh??? I thought they were either or? Never heard of a different interface for an internal HD-DVD / Blu-Ray drive.

    It was a joke.

    Look up the ATi RV670 and nVidia G8E (G92).
