I had the 3870 long before the 4XXX's come out, may look out for a 4870 or 4850 and clock it up, but cash is abit tight after this new Cpu, gotta sell the bike now!
My 3dmark 06 Results:
That is nice score for a single card. I belive even a single 4870 gets around same results. If I were you I would keep that card untill the new 4890 comes out. From what I heard they are going to have around 20% increase over ther current 4870s.
I know what you mean, I had kind of limited budget too and that is the reason why I went with the 720BE and the money I saved from cpu helped me to get 4870x2. I thought "hey since I am going to spend this kind of money once on a gaming rig then I should get the best with the money I have"(well actually i didnt have it and I put everything on a newegg account but that is another story).
I just hope this system would take me at least couple of years. Even if it doesnt I kind of feel good that I got the AM3 base and I wont have any problem with upgrading in future.Edited by suphiceto - 3/28/09 at 11:42am
