Looking for an upgrade
yes i know long time that i have posted lol
Looking to upgrade my video card,
I currently have a eVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, need something a little better. not getting enough fps on my favorite game soo time to upgrade
havent had time to keep up on whats good and whats not, oh and i will be building a new system in Sept so this will become the wifes computer, so nothing to extreme
rest of spec
Gigabyte ds3 3.3rev
2 GB GSkill
$150 - $300 mark should be good
Even a 4850 would be a fairly hefty upgrade from the 8800 GTS 320.
NCIX.com - Buy XFX Radeon HD 4870 XXX 775MHZ 1GB 3.8GHZ DDR5 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out Video Card - HD487AZDDC In Canada.
!!! apparantly there is an instant rebate for the xfx cards!!!!!!
294 for the 1gb version!!
So ATI cards are the new badboys are they?
Although thats a nice price, i dont want to wait for shipping lol, i am buying something tomorrow
so this will work, and be a good difference then what i currently have?
it will be a huge difference.
if you spend 50 dollars more though you can get the 512mb version of the 4870, also overclocked and it's xfx, which comes with a lifetime warranty that covers everything except accidental.

Wait for tomorrow's NCIX sale. Should see some NVIDIA price drops soon, since USA had the GTX280 for $200 for a brief amount of time.
@OP. What resolution are you running at? And I guess it's time for you to overclock.
I am running at 1600x1200, and i hate to say it, but its just to play World of Warcraft :whistle:
the problem is during the big raids i am getting some serious video lag, and it is pissing me off, i picked up a new E7200 so that is going in tonight
