So its my 18th birthday soon and the budget is possibly around the region of £100 - £200.
I've always pushed my GPU's to the limit in gaming, simply because im a sucker for high graphics... However. My GPU at the moment is the Radeon HD 2600 XT 512MB GDDR4 Diamond edition, and sadly - it cant run Crysis extremely well. It can manage Medium graphics... just about...
Yes yes, I know, its a Radeon, quite an old one it seems. Suprisingly, I managed to run Fallout 3 on the highest graphics without sweat - but its a vastly open landscape with grass and tress that dont move... yes - im referring to Oblivion, which I could run on the highest detail, but struggled very badly in nature infested landscape.
SO! this aside...
the specs of my computer are
6gig of Corsair DDR3 RAM
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 clocked at 3.2ghz (yes I will be clocking it to 3.6)
Antec 900 gaming case (if thats any cooling consolation)
ASUS P5K3 Deluxe motherboard
750W Power Socket of some sort
Artic Freezer fan
Now - ive been looking at the 9800 GX2. It is atleast twice as good as the:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+
Although I may sound as if im not asking for a lot (which I am xD) - any opinions about GPU's, links etc to graphcis cards that can run Crysis in Very high with 1280 x 1024 resolution, fire away!
im deeply considering the 9800 GX2.
thanks in advance!
- look at the 9800 GX2 in comparison to others, its quite a lot.
