Upgrade time again

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of doing a quick upgrade just to boost performance on my rig for the summer, as ill have more gaming time again with exams over

Im thinking this

Just a couple things, performance wise for new games out (im including crysis here havent had a chance yet) how is this card against an 8800 or my current 8600GTS?

And power wise any big issues here?

any benchmark links or advice would be awesome. Thanks

Good card. though the next Nvidia series is around the corner. Could it be possible to wait a month or 2 before upgrading? It will be worth it

If you budget is $300 then, 9800gtx or 8800gts G92 is fine. Otherwise, maybe it is a good time to wait 3 more weeks to see how the GTX and H4 series work.
