I want a new graphics card to play Empire: Total War. Is the 9800 GTX+ the right one for me?
Get yourself a good 22" monitor and run that sucker at 1680x1050. Your 9800GTX+ will run just fine at that rez. You should be able to enable all eye candy for some really good graphics. I had a EVGA 9800GTX+ before my current 260 , and it was a sweet card. No need to spend the extra bucks on a 24" monitor though, as your setup will chug abit at 1900x1200.
