1. I live in Poland so not that much snow.

2. I live in the capital of Poland, a city with nearly 2 million people, where would I find some driveways near me lol

OCn has a for sale section where people let go of their unwanted hardware. Look around in their. You can buy a very good graphics card in their for much less than buying one new. Also whats the brand name of your power supply?

Yeah, I wouldn't try to put any other more demanding card than you have on that PSU. The card you have actually isn't that bad. At least it's not a 8600gt or lesser. 1280x1024 and 75 fps is actually pretty good. Also, is your CPU overclocked at all? If not, I'd look into that for a bit better of performance.

Yeah it's @ 3.3 GHZ. Stock is 3.1 GHZ. Anymore is unstable.

What about getting a 22"? I was gonna get a 24" What do you guys think?

Well I'm going to be getting a 22" monitor, but I'm also getting a second card for SLI. I really don't enjoy less than 50 fps in cod4, b/c to me, it doesn't seem smooth like 60+. You could always get a 22" and run it at 1440x900 instead of 1680x1050.

I wouldn't do the 24" with your hardware. The res would probably kill the FPS, the 22" will be alot more forgiving. And as far as upgrading (if you can gather the monies ) -- another 9600GT and a bit better PSU.

Get the 22". Sell your old monitor and your psu. Get a more powerful psu of decent brand cheapest you can find. If you still got any money left sell your vid card and use the rest of your money to buy a better vid card.
