As the topic says I'm interested in upgrading my single, 8800gtx to something with a bit more bang. I'm currently using a nvidia nforce 590i sli motherboard, the problem is it only has pci express 1.0 sockets, two of them for sli. I've been told that the Radeon hd 4850 has amazing performance for its price, but I'm not sure how it'll work in an nvidia based motherboard with pcie 1.0 sockets, compared to let say a geforce gtx 260 core 216 edition.
I was looking at just buying another 8800gtx to boost the performance, but since they are discontinued they average about $300+, about the same as a 4850 or 260 core 216, more then I'm willing to pay for an "older" card.
I also game on a 19inch crt with a max resolution of 2048x1536. I'd like to see Crysis run smoother @ 1600x1200 with max details, minus aa+af the main reason I want to upgrade.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post and any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
