    Yes, the g92 8800gts is much better than the other two. 3870 at that price doesn't make sense, as it perform the same as 9600gt, but cost more. The psu should do fine. And g92 8800gts will do high settings smoothly for all games, including Crysis at 60+ fps high settings 1280x1024 resolution. With the other two, you can still play most games at high settings, but not all.
  3. I'd say that you need multi-GPU configuration to game at 19x12 respectably.
  4. hola amigas del foro como se pueden dar cuenta spy nuevo en el foro y queria saber si me podian ayudar a ver que tarjeta de video es mejor ATI HD2600pro o un Ati x1650 las dos son AGP ya que yo no cuento con una buena maquina que quiero saber cual de las dos me combiene para poder jugar GEAR of WAR y CALL of Duty????
  5. bueno....Tengo que decir que te consiga un 3850, AGP es lo mejor que hay de AGP. Pero entre esos, dod el 1650 es mejor
  6. Definately the 3850! but between the 1650 and 2600, the 2600 is better.
  7. Oh and for the OP... get the 8800GTS (G92). Sorry the above post was for xcalibur09.
  8. 8800GTS 512MB G92 (177$)
