Upgrade from 7950GT KO or 8600 GTS Superclocked

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it worth spending the money for it?I don't really need it as my 7950 plays the games I want to but I am just ready for a new toy.
Is it worth spending the $225 on it or waiting and saving for the 8800

8800GTS ftw, it is a much better buy then the 8600GTS, becuase it cant even beat a 7900GTX, while a 8800GTS slaughters it. Go with the 8800TS

You would be downgrading. Only way out for you would be up (8800s, 2900s).

I'm still not 100% sure which 8800 I am going to get.Like I said I don't play to many games.Mainly source and some racing games.
I am considering the 320MB 8800.
