need a 8800 compatiable MOBO - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Bottlenecks mean nothing tbh. You'll notice a performance difference with an 8800GTX and a slower CPU than, say a 7900 series with a better CPU.

Plus you'll be DX10 ready.

I'd be inclined to agree with Frisbeeofdeath, what game are you playing right now that needs directx10? Buy a DX10 card when you buy your first DX10 game.

well it really depends on the budget of the person, if he can spend enough money for a whole new system, it would be better to get the best CPU and wait for the DX10 GPU refresh. Remember the x1800 and 7800? remember how they were beaten in price, performance, and temps a month or two later? Besides, you wont notice the difference between 100 and 200 FPS. Unless you're going for bleeding edge, which is a whole other story lol. In that case, the 8800 would be better because I believe it has many more AA modes and goodies like that.

thanku all very much for ur valuable suggestions! i really appreciate that
I think I ll try to buy the E6600 now & for the time being I'll use the onboard card which should b there in the motherboard.
But theres just 1 thing I want to make sure of.. I know that change is the only permanant thing, especially in computers but jus like we r preapring ourselves for DX10 I hope there isnt going to be another era of new processors .. i mean i know ther will always b some new processors coming up but wat i wana know for sure is that the E6600 processors don't become obselete when the new gen cards come ..
thanks again

they shouldnt become totally obsolete. Of course, Intel has its roadmap planned out and we'll have to eventually upgrade in a couple of years if you wanna stay ahead. The e6600 is a fine choice though. I wouldn't worry about another CPU for at least a year.

1 year is too early for me to upgrade.. money is an object ... so should i wait for like a year? I guess even if i wait for a year, the technology that I'll buy will become obselete after another year, right?
post #28 of 32
Well, within a year it won't be obselete it'll just be not that great, something better will have been released by then. It's just the way things are. I bought my processor a year and a half ago, it was one of the top ones then but now it's basic, thank goodness it's got 64 bit so i can get the 64 bit vista!
