For 3d you should probably at least have a voodoo 1.

So you gonna burn around 400$ on 3D kit instead of upgrading your ageing 9600GT ? your weird man. :eek:

I don't know. I think you're pushing it with a 9600GT, though I guess it depends how picky you are about framerates.

IMO definetly get a better gfx card dude, you can never run games in 1680*1050 X 2
Thats just to much, okey maybe it dont take 2X power but nearly it does. nVidia do promise tho that they will optimize it.

Anyway a 9600GT is just crap for any new games even at say rendering 1680*1050 in 2D!

I dont want to play "new new" games just some old games. I sold my GTX 295 and wish to wait for GT 300.

I might buy a gtx 280 but it would mean having to upgrade my psu :(

GTX275!!!

Buying a 280 would be very stupid


Ebuyer had the gtx275 ichill a while back for 217 ,Thats with the accelero cooler already installed.
If they ever get any more they'll probly put the price up though.

Is the GTX 275 better than the GTX 280? I was sorta hoping not to pay 200 for a card :o.

I can get a GTX 280 for 150 2nd hand. Is it worth saving me 50?

lol ,no ,Get that.

Do you collect gullible people to sell you stuff for cheeep?

I just checked ebay and I have a 10% voucher,I could get a 280 aswell (but for 200) but I aint got the pahwah! :(

pahwah?


Meh im tempted to go for this gtx 280 even though it would mean I would also have to upgrade my damn PSU (I got a nice price for my PSU after I sold my GTX 295). I will go 3D if a certain TV fits the bill in regards its suitability :)
