Need some help deciding

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Im upgrading my uncles current GFX card, which is a 7600gt ( i just threw it in there temporarily). I was thinking another DX 9 card because A) the 8800 320 is a bit out of reach price wise and B)the 8600gt ain't so hot.

The choices :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161092

The rig:
E6300 @ 3ghz
2gb xms2 5400C4
Nuuo 550w
DS3 Mobo

Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated!

1950XT. this isn't even a question, it's a statement of fact

i can't believe how far down their prices have gotten. i'm almost embarrassed to admit i paid... are you ready for this?... $350 for my 1900XTX last summer. wow. that 1950XT is the way to go.

1950XT, or save up for a GTS. They're getting cheaper every few days, just keep checking prices And the more time you save up, the cheaper they get, so you win both ways.

I would really get the GTS.. Does he really game?

Does he have Vista? I would get the GTS if he does because of upcoming DX10 games... But the 1900 should do fine if you are still in XP.
