Mobo is a G945 board ripped out of an HP pavilion system (my understanding is that its a very hard board to oc )
2 gigs of ram at 667
300 gig seagate 7200 rpm drive
lg gsa-h62l dvd player
22 inch samsung (run at 1650x1080) when possible
I dont have alot of money and have read alot of these boards and have come to the conclusion that an 8800gt should be a good bang for my buck to throw in my system. But I wanted to post and make doubly sure itll be a reasonable upgrade for my system in consideration to my specs.
Basically wondering if any part of my system will greatly imped the new cards performance.
HD3870 Looks promising I do admit. Altho I am a bit disapointed with its performance in the latest bench marks I think only because I was truly anticipating more significant results.
Well atm I can get an evga 8800GT for 290 bucks. Im in Canada and am a bit secluded so prices tend to be a bit higher here. So in light of that do you think I should still wait for the 3870 and pray for some driver optimization.
Also bare in mind that I simply cannot play my computer at all right now.
