On the chart(Nvidia link above) it shows both the 640 and 650 to be double(or more) than my current configuration. You dont think they will be good enough for the future generations of games? I dont want to replace my replacement , thats for sure. Which is more important. The size of the memory vs 128bit, 192 bit, 256 bit? ddr3, ddr5? Every card has more of one and less of the rest.
The GTX 480 looks sweet. $170 is alot of money. America is **** anymore.
I have a hard time to think a GT 640 is double than 8800 GTX. GT 640 is too weak to be considered a hardcore gaming card. You can find Radeon HD7770 at about the same price and it performs much better.
GTX 650 Ti while it performs decently with current generation of games, I don't recommend that card for hardcore gaming, you can find an HD7850 1 GB
at about the same price but will easily destroy it, the Radeon comes equipped with 256-bit bus-width & 32 ROPs unlike GTX 650 Ti's 128-bit & 16 ROPs.
$160-170 for a GTX 480 is a pretty damn good deal and is pretty cheap, considering about a year and a half ago it was an ultra-high-end GPU that is priced between $500-550.
GTX 480 peforms very well at that price, the price/ performance ratio is awesome the only downside is the performance vs. watts produced.
Anyways, you can find used GTX 480s in eBay for even less than that, if you want only from the green...
