Card for 1440x900

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Alright, I have a 8600gts, but it just isn't cutting it anymore (just got a new LCD ). I'm in need of a graphics card upgrade. Now I don't want to spend anymore than $150. It needs to be able to utilize 1440x900 (resolution of my monitor) without any hick-ups.

A 9600GT or an HD3850 would do the trick.

evga 9600GT, ($150+$7 s/h) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130334
but if you can get another $13, get the XFX 8800gt 512 ($170 shipped), its a great card. i went from a 8600gts to a 8800gt 512, my fps doubled at 1680x1050.

post #7 of 31
Yea, i would try and get $170 - $180 for a 88GT. EVGA 88GT is only $179.99 and worth every bit.

I'll be playing primarily source games, Flight Simulator X, and other games.
Edit: I guess I'll want a Nvidia card since I have a SLI board. Unless the increase in performance in source games is really that great with ATI.
