$385 to spend What to buy - Page 2

post #11 of 38
do you run vista? if not grab a 7900GS for cheap till DX10 levels out or the Nvidia price drop for 8 series cards hits.....then step up...

The 7900GS will be on par if not better than the 8600GT in DX9 apps.....

NICE!!! I didn't see that. I can't spend more than $100 on a GPU and i didn't think the 7900's are even in that price range with a rebate. Didn't even think to look there.

Great find Screw the 7600 i'm getting the 7900



What do you think of the mobo I posted. The Gigabyte Mobo I posed P965



Is that a good chipset to OC on? I'm thinking of taking the E4300 from 1.8ghz to 3.2ghz with my zalman cooler

DX10 is over rated. Very little will play DX10 in the next few years and the second generation of DX10 cards will be a lot better than the first, especially for budget models..

Okay, still does not change the fact the card gets 5200 in 3dmark for $100 it seems like the obvious one to get...
