    Default Which Graphics Card should I get?

    I got a new video card 8600GT and installed but i searched the web and found the new NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX 512mb, is it better than the 8600 because i was thinking about getting a new computer and installing it to play TDU.

    if you want something cheaper and better than your 8600, the 8800gt 512mb is the best bang for the buck. i think they go for 190 us dollars now and is also waaaay better than the 8600.

    And also don't be put off by the 9800GTX reviews as it has just come out and with time nvidia will bring out new drivers that will further improve the performance of the card.

    and for a little more moolah, you can get the 8800gts 512mb (G92) which is also better than the 8800gt.

    Before you order the card make sure it will fit in your PC as the card is about 275mm long.

    I dont think there is any single card that is out yet that could play crysis in DX10, 4xAA, full HD resolution with all settings on very high. I think that 3 of these cards may be able to do that but not easily, crysis will make your PC cry.
