Hello all.Just wondered if anyone could let me know if it's worth me upgrading from a 8800GTS 320MB to a Asus ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 TV-Out/Dual DVI/HDMI (PCI-Express)?
Would I get much smoother running games ie Crysis.
My memory is currently on max so graphics card is the only real upgrade I am looking to do.
Or any upgrade recommendations for about 200 ($400) price region.
Many thanks in advance.

Yes, you should see a nice performance boost w/ all games. I went from a 8800GTS 640M to a 9800GTX+ 512m and saw a pretty good increase, so, in comparison w/ my 9800 and the 4870, you should see improvement too.

Yes with a HD4870 you will see a big increase in everthing.You would even see a good increase with just a 8800GT512mb,but a HD 4870 will be a great upgrade.
