Elite Bastards solves the riddle of hardware requirements for Half Life 2 - Episode 1. If you didn;t have to upgrade to play the main game, but did need it to use the newer features in Lost Coast, then you will probably want an upgrade.

The Hardware Zone did it. By reverting to an older driver, they managed to get 2 7950GXs running in SLI. Sure it might be a little bit of overkill, but if you can afford a 30" display, and have one of the current speediest CPUs, why let all that bandwidth go to waste, and get yourself a video system with 2 Gigs of VRAM.

ATI's X1600 Pro is available for under $100. It probably will not impress the hard core gamer with it's results, especially if you are used to anti-aliasing, but a casual gamer may well love it. It is a VIVO card that lets you output to TV's, so drop by [H]ard|OCP to see what else it can do.

Join them as they examine how the various companies have dealt with the issues that arise from the 7900 series.
