Default Re: Upgrade from 5850: which one?

Though I see you're hanging onto an 8800 GTX so I'm sure you can kind of understand where I'm coming from.
It's the difference between 30 fps or 40 fps(25%). Also 50 fps or 65 fps(24%). This translates into the same increases for Min fps as well in most situations. I do understand where you're coming from, but we disagree on what very small differences in performance are. I'm holding on to my 8800gtx, but not because I upgrade for 100% performance difference. I simply find the games I tend to play don't require it at the moment.
