Another 8600GT or somethin else? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If I were you I would go for the 9800 GTX. It's +/- $200 right now.

yeah my resolution isn't huge by any means. 1280 x 1024 so maybe I don't need the 9800GTX's extra power.

I don't know that I agree with the fact that a 9800GTX is overkill for 1280x1024 res. Typically I'd say that amount of vram is what dictates whether a card is overkill for a resolution, not necessarily the card itself. For example, I'd say that a 9800gtx with 512MB vram is pretty much perfect for 1280x1024 resolutions given how demanding current games are--more than that might be overkill. But given how complex the textures/shaders, etc. are for current games (and near-future games), you might be shooting yourself in the foot if you go with an 8800gt right now (by far an awesome card, don't get me wrong, and I'd love to have one), especially given how the prices seem to be dropping quick.
