Im Wondering if i should buy an EVGA OC

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130302

or should i wait on the later modules to come in ......


I need to have a video card that will easily play these games at High to Ultra High (that would be great..)

Crysis
HellGate London
Unreal Tournament
Call of Duty 4
ETC....

Any Thoughts?

Also what about ATI's new cards coming out?

option #3: stop making threads like these. there are literally dozens already out there.

As of right now I don't think there is any single card that can play crisis 'easily', but you mentioned high settings will do, right now(this very second in moment) I believe the 8800GT is your best bet..BUT do not pay any more than $250 for it. I got mine for $240 @ buy.com. No its not as good as a GTX but thats when the price factor comes in, right now I think its the biggest bang for your buck. And as far as these OC version's go, just take the 5 minutes required to download a decent OC utility and do it yourself(sometimes the utility will try and find it for you) and save a few bucks.
