New Build and NEW to INTEL products help please. - Page 3

post #21 of 29
To save money, get a case with free shipping. Shipping costs on those things are usually pretty high.

Also, a 9500gt is only worth about $45. At $60, you can get much better performance.

With MMOs you can get decent fps on almost any card out now (they're low poly and use small materials for texturing). If you plan to game with DX10, get the best you can afford (look at the testing charts, and fit one to your budget). HD4870 now is going so cheap it's a literal steal to grab one.

Once all your rebate money comes in, you could always Step-Up with eVGA and get a new card.

The 9500GT is NOT a gaming card. Even for something as mild as WoW, you won't be able to turn on shadows or multi-sampling.
If you just ordered it, try canceling. If that doesn't work you can do the dishonest thing and get a refund for a "defective" product.
