I haven't bought any new games (besides Sims 3) in a long time due to my old vid card (7800 GTX 512) and cpu (AMD 3800+) that I had. Now that I updated everything I am anxious to see how some new games run on here.
We bought the same card
I also went with some new Corsair ram (4 gigs) to replace the two I had. I know I'll only see around 3.1 but whatever....
I can't wait to fire up Crysis with the new card. I've done my homework, and it looks like 1680 x 1050 @ high settings is the way to go, as that gets you 50+ FPS. That will be a major difference from 25-30 with occasional drops into the single digits.
