just for now - Page 2

post #11 of 13
im assuming he wants a agp card, beauces at this point in time he has a agp motherboard, and he wants whats best for his current setup, as he has said he will be upgrading, prob to some new kickass system shortly, it would be rather foolish to buy a new motherboard just so he can have a pci-e card, when he will be building a new system shortly...

now im gonna anticipate the next question, why doesnt he just say screw it, and wait till he has a new system, well perhaps he will be using this system until his new one is built, and he either has no tolerance for slow games, or he will be giving the computer to a sibling or other loved one, and he wants them to have a good system..

I would go with the 7800GS to hold you over as they are a good bit cheaper than the x1950pro. Weaker yet if your buying a new system I would think it would be more worth your while so you can put that into making another kickass syetm later.

EDIT: I was going on newegg to see the actual prices only to find the 7900GS with a very nice MIR.

Just like the 7600GT with its 58 MIR this one is 60. I mean after MIR is 115 bucks really worth an x1950pro which you will get rid of fairly soon and really isnt that much more powerful? Send in that MIR and you should recive it by the time you want to build your new system...lol if your lucky
