What to get...........

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
RMAing my GTX465 since i got blue PCB instead of black and cant decide whether i want to wait for a good deal on a video card or just go ahead and buy a Q6600 + CM hyper 212+ instead.
Unless you have a better idea, limit is 150$ since thats my RMA

I would wait on the video card imo. With the new ATI cards coming out this week and nvidia shipping the 590 around march 22 , prices will be falling on every thing else. Heck the 6950 have droped about $50.00 in the last week alone.

I woulld but a good mid range card will cost you around 200-250.

Oh and a little fyi, most of the 6950's can be unlocked to 6970's. If your even looking at ATI.

I would wait, but keep an eye on this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125362

The 560Ti, when oced to 1ghz beats the crap out of a 570. Right now it's $270 and out of stock. If it stays that way, as some items never come back to the egg, get an MSI 560Ti and oc it till it begs you to stop.
