choice between two?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi guys,
Looking to upgrade my pc but at the minute im stuc for choice what to do. I'm planning to get an ATI card because i do alot of multimedia stuff and its way cheaper!

At the moment im running a sapphire x1950pro and im looking into upgrading. I cant afford a 3870x2 so i was looking at a 3870. Are they any good or would i be better off gettin another 1950?

thanks in advance

The 3870 is a really great card and I would own one except for I didn't have enough money. Went with a 9600GT Get it That is the advice i give... which one do you want to get?

Just done my specs, yeah i was thinking my card was a little out dated lol

Erm i've always had ati's because of the price of them and i've always been happy. I like the spec of the 3870 for the price i just dont want it to get outdated quick. Might just spend that bit more and get the x2 version
