Anyone see a comparison between the two? I currently have the VF700-Cu and am wondering if it is worth it to upgrade to the VF900-Cu. Is it that much better?

No, not worth the upgrade. The 900 was mainly designed for the 1800s, 1900s, 7900s, and up.... Anything below those cards and the 700 will be fine.

Excellent. That is exactly what I was looking for.

It does make a noticable difference. But I don't know if I want to deal with the hastle of selling this and buying the new for just 4C. I think I'm going to go with the volt mod if I can't get the x1900 that may be showing up. I'd really prefer the ATI since it seems to do better in Oblivion.

Did you find a good PCI-e 940 board?
