Now Nvidia have released they're newest series I want to look again at buying a new single graphics card to replace my existing 2 x Geforce 7600GT cards (SLi). Because my processors aging a bit it just doesn't hack SLi so rather than upgrade the whole system (which ideally I do need to do) I want to get a new card for under £200. I have an nForce board and would rather stick to Nvidia cards over ATi. I've been looking at the GTX 260 but I can't get my head around the new series number convention. Can anyone recommend a card for around £200 that would complement my setup?
ASUS A8N-SLI SE
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
Geforce 7600GT (XFX) (To be replaced)
Geforce 7600GT (ASUS) (to be replaced)
Windows 7 (64bit)
Thanks for the advice The GTX465 is as you said out of my budget but if the 460 will come in more affordable I'll hold out for that. I need to upgrade the chip in my board too but atm the gfx cards are the bottleneck. As you said the second I buy a new card that'll switch over and the CPU will be the bottleneck. Then I'll buy a new i7 or something and all should balance ok for a bit.
It's like juggling balls...
