i still say the GTS is the best thing right now. wont get the 9600 or 3870.
Agreed but what stridervm asked is the most important thing now you may well be looking at cards your CPU just cant handle.
true, but he never asked bout cpu, n never mentioned it. so im just making my answers as short as possible. if i start taking all possibilities to make his gaming optimum. i would have to talk bout everything, from cpu, psu, gpu, rams, LCD, etc.
