Should i sell my gpu? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
yea keep it until you have to play newer games on lower resolutions and low settings, until then its just not worth it to upgrade. GPUs are ahead of the current PC games except for Crysis and even that your card can still play smoothly.

yah keep the GTS 640, a good card that can play anything out atm. I played crysis on my GTS 320 all medium 1680x1050 40-70 fps, COD4 maxxed out so enjoy it and wait until the new cards coming out prices start going way down before worrying about it.

Def. keep what you have. The card plays the games well, then there is nothing more to wonder about. I have had my 8800GT for a while now and it does just fine. Not looking to upgrade for a while until I see what the CPU/GPU fusion projects yield. There are always upgrades you can do, so just view it as getting what you need and performs the tasks well at a reasonable price.

As everyone else keep it. If it has 112SPs the 8800GT is only a marginal improvement.

just keep the card mate.... what else do you want? it plays ALL your games, meaning it satisfies you. we are just being teased by GPU makers on releasing new models from time to time, and the specs is almost similar, just a little difference in clocks and shaders so that we consumers will keep upgrading, (upgrading=$$$). the important is that our rig satisfies our needs. your 640 GTS could last until next year IMO. hope this helps..

The raw power of these new cards is not even necessary when our current cards play them just fine. Don't fall into the trap of marketing and consumerism.
Agreed.

I usually recommend people get the new stuff say, if they are still running a 7900,7800 or the old school X800 series. asside from that, 8800gt to 9800gt or even gtx will barely show you even a split hair of difference UNLESS you are running giant (24"+) dual monitors, both at 1600*1200 plus resolutions
