Want to upgrade my 1950xt

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I looking for some opinions on what to upgrade to so I can play AoC better. Looking to keep it below $200. I read some good reviews about the 9600 but then I'm reading its crap vs the 8800gt. *** is up?

Edit: Would it even be worth the upgrade and are there any price drops I should wait for that are coming soon.

9600GT is about 80-90% of the performance of the 8800GT, but the choice should be made depending on your monitor's native resolution.

If you're willing to wait for rebates, here's a great card. An 8800GTS
EDIT:Here's an even cheaper one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814134037

It's $220 before rebate, $170 after
