I am currently using the below mentioned V/C, however as more games enter the market I am falling farther behind and missing out on all the games' glory. I am stuck running games at bare minimum most times. I am not a huge gamer where I constantly play games.

However, I do have a tendency to try new games and there are the few times where I do get that addicition and nothing sucks more than not being able to play a game at its full potential.

I don't want a top of the line card as we are now approaching a new round of cards to the market, however I want something that can hold me over for quite awhile with new games coming to market.

Any suggestions?

A GeforceFX 5900XT gives a very good price/performance ratio - outperforms the 9600xt more often than not, and scores 1000 more than the 9600xt in 3dmark03; not that that means anything anymore though :)

well here a good quality 9600xt (not some gecube/gexcube/see how different stores call it differently?/crap) costs around $275, and the 5900xt is around $325. i think its $50 well spent.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
