OH NO NO NO!!!! Don't buy a new card because of Dragon Age II!!!!!

I hope you didn't... the nvidia drivers were so crappy for Dragon Age II!!!!! That was the cause of bad performance... the new drivers increase the performance of that game by 400-600% (depending on the card). They are still beta drivers, but I'd test them out and you'll see you won't need another card for this game.

Thanks Dreamn, not to worry I was not buying a new card just for Dragon Age II, I was running the Beta Nvidia drivers when I made this post it didn't help me out that much still waiting on the official release. I have decided to wait until the next gen comes out and just buy SLI 680's (or equivalent) from the start.

But yeah the Dragon Age just made me think I may need to start thinking of an upgrade because I like to run games at maximum, but Dragon Age is still the only one I am having issues running so until another -non-driver-related- issue appears I will not worry and hopefully by then the 680's right around the corner lol.
