9800GTX to replace 8800GTS 320?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Is it worth the money? I'm currently playing AoC and it seems my card struggles while I'm in a town. FPS drops to as low as 5 in Lowest detail settings 1680x1050...

No, the difference would not be that big. I would hold off for the HD4870 thats coming out in about 3 weeks.

It seems like a good idea to me because I think it's the 320mb ram holding it back.... is this true?

Before you go out and buy new hardware, I'd find out if anyone in your area has decent framerates in town. It's quite possible, especially for a new MMO, that you're experiencing server lag on their side.
