I will be purchasing a new video card within the upcoming weeks and I had a few questions I wanted to run by everyone and see what their opinions were. Keep in mind my current monitor is a 30" Samsung SyncMaster 305t and I will be playing Age of Conan when it releases, but it would be ideal for me to run it on the highest resolution which is 2560x1600 with as high of detail as I can.
1) From the benchmarks I've seen it's questionable whether or not the 9600gt will suffice for my needs, however what are your opinions?
2) What if I were to run an SLI configuration of the 9600gt would this give me better performance than a 9800 gx2?
3) Should I invest the money and opt for the 9800 gx2? Will the 9800 gx2 be able to sustain high level of detail and 2560x1600?
Thanks a lot for trying to help me out and I appreciate any feedback or suggestions you can give me towards the matter. I have been out of the loop with video cards for a few months now so I do not know all the best options available.
