    i havent played cod4.

    I did play bioshock, but I consider it system shock 2.5.

    Still, IMHO those two games don't move me to spend 200 dollars maybe 120.

    How about STALKER? Loosely based on Roadside Picnic. The movie Stalker is very good too.

    CoD4 is just....epic....

    That card is pretty good for $109. Could also try an 8600GT

    lol
    thanks for trying to convince me to spend my money on mediocre cards.

    those cards are "the crap" now

    stalker was blah. I am not the big fan of fps as I use to be.

    anyway, on topic

    the 9600 is going to be even sweeter when the price point is a little lower
    i predict a drop to 130 to 150 by summer time

    Best card for $109, $160 is the minimum for a good one.

    STALKER is an RPG FPS with a great story, 7 endings, and a very "real" feel. Really, it's either a love or hate game.

    I don't see the 9600 staying a serious card for long. In 6 months, the 9800s will be $200-$250.

    That 4870x2 would be about double the power of a 3870x2, I think according to the FLOPS.

    With age of conan right around the corner, I may seriously consider picking up one of these.

    Just ordered a MSI 9600 GT overclocked for £116.00 delivered [​IMG] From all my research it consistently out performs the 8800 gs which is the closest priced card and pushes the 8800 GT pretty close, and I save 50 pounds! Woohoo! It performs over twice as well as my 8600 GT i have at the moment, and even that runs fine, although Crysis nearly sets the monitor on fire it's so graphically intensive. And from the benchmarks this card runs amazingly up to 1680 by 1050 and as thats all my monitor can support it looks perfect! Although a bit annoyed it's cheaper in America, but you always get the cards cheaper there god-damn it!

    It will be better, obviously. But I seriously doubt it'll be 2x Better.

    errr...AGP or PCI-E? I'll assume you have PCI-E and suggest you this though. Spend $10 more and get this:

    What Im wondering is what about those expensive ass Quadro cards? Would an FX 5600 outperform 8800 GTX if it plays games?

    Nah, those are for Video Editing. They actually are crap at gaming. They were made for OpenGL use, Not DirectX.

    According to that, you have a PCI-E Slot. So the card I posted is compatible with your PC. Buy that if you can.

    I'm not very informed with Canadian Shop sites, But the price is comparable to US Prices, so I'd say it's a pretty good deal. Actually it's 2 cents cheaper than the US version on TigerDirect.

    Cheapest I've seen so far is $179.99 at NCIX in Canadian pricing...

    That's pretty hot if you ask me!

    If all you're playing is WC3, I'd recommend getting an older, used graphics card, search craigslist or something. My PoS x300 SE (slower edition) which I've long since replaced, could run WC3 at 60 fps
