Ok so I have been agonizing over this for months,

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8636657&productCategoryId=abcat0507002&type=product&tab=2&id=1194053242019#productdetail

What do you think about the VisionTek brand? Is this a good card? And what drivers should I install for this card? I heard 7.11 stinks, what about 7.10?

Visiontek is fine.

Looks like a good deal, but don't you think it's worth the extra $$ for the 512mb card?

How much extra $$ ? Would the extra memory benifit at 1680x1050? This card still seems to perform good even at that resolution.

$40 more for a 3850 512mb on newegg...

Aside from resolution, the 512mb of memory will let you set ultra-high texture detail without a masdsive performance penalty in games like Crysis or Doom3 based stuff.

I dunno, that'd be a factor for me. I'm a detail whore though. Might not be worth the $40 for everybosy though.

Ahhhh,

I think this card will be good enough for me for now. Thanks for the help! :D 

I'll post what kind of performence I get when I get the card!

Oh yeah, what driver should I install? The 7.10 one?

Doesn't matter... 7.12 should be here before your card arrives anyhoo. :D

I have till 5 this evening to order and it will get here on the 24'th. I case it arrives before 7.12 does I think I will install 7.10. Comments? :bounce:
