Video card upgrade question #1000000099

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well yes, one of those topics again...
Currently I'm running a 8800GTS 640mb (old version) and it usually runs everything real well. Recently though I got a larger monitor (1920x1200) and Age of Conan...and it's not as smooth as I would like it to be in many areas at high detail settings.
However I am stumped on what to upgrade to... my board is not SLI, so here are my options:
-Buy another motherboard AND one more 8800GTS 640mb and SLI
-Buy a different 9xxx series card
-wait?


What do you think? My other components I won't be upgrading anytime soon...
Thanks

I would say wait for the new series coming out both from ATI and Nvidia. Once you see what kind of performance they offer, you can upgrade according to what seems best fit. They should be in within the next month to early July.

Wait ...at least for GT2*0/RV770* ...or whatever they're called.
You're current car should hold well until then!
