why did you just make that remark, I just want different points of view, ok? sheesh, I'm not getting the 280 its too expensive and I would need to upgrade my PSU to get it now too and I don't want to, or need to. With my lower res needs, I am thinking about the XFX 9800 GTX OC Black Edition or something what about that, anymore ideas?
A 4850 will be more than enough for your current system. It won't kill your PSU, and at the resolutions you can run on your monitors you'll not notice any difference with a higher end GPU from either camp. 4850 also happens to be the current 'best bang for the buck' performance leader.
The 9800 would also be a good choice, but your PSU may be a little bit underpowered for the task. I haven't checked out the 9800 prices recently, so if they have dropped below the 4850, and you are willing to gamble with your PSU, why not?
The reason that I made my original post is that all of your posts follow the same pattern. You ask for advice, post several follow up requests for different advice, then when you finally get a response its off to the multi-post races again. Finally, after about 50 posts by you, the thread finally dies.
