    if you are stuck with a 64MB and have are saving up for one... you should be xDD.

    You guys know my PC... P4, 2GB RAM, 64MB Graphics... If you were in my position, you would be jealous...

    Anyway... Should I get a ATI card or a Nvidia if I make a gaming PC?

    Wrong total, actually $91...

    Might buy myself a Sapphire Radeon 4670 for myself when I make a gaming PC. That's what he was suppose to buy, but since he saw this other card for a cheaper price, he decided to go for it (the 4670 is $85)

    I hate it when people go for cheaper cards and not realise the extreme drop in performance they're going to recieve. Oh well.

    btw you can get an 8800GT on ebay real cheap these days.

    Aww. Poor dad. He didn't get a mac. But if he isn't at least dual booting Linux with it, it's money wasted.

    (If you can't see, I'm a *nix user.)

    Awesome stuff guys. I might end up getting a 4800 series card from ATI.

    He doesnt use Linux... He is a pure Windows user. Has no plans of getting a Mac. And also, since this program he uses is only compatible with Windows I think...

    Ty for the review.

    Shitty card and highly over priced. You can get a 9600GT for less then that and it's better.

    Crap, here in the states you can pickup a GTX260 216 core for less than $150 new. Back in december I picked up a GTX260 192 core for $160.

    Even if it WAS a good GPU, the fact that he bought an XFX is nothing to be jealous about, you should pity him. XFX are the biggest pieces of shit, and you can plan on it breaking down within 6 months.

    Enjoy your RMA for another piece of shit XFX!
