thinking of upgrading my BFG Tech 8800GTS card for something better. I was thinking of a g200 series card but I really do not know which one would suit me best. i have a budget of around 300 USD and I may actually have to upgrade my psu if I get a card that eats up a lot more juice than my current 8800 GTS. Any suggestions welcome! And btw does anyone know when the new g300 nVidia cards come out? should I wait to get those instead? Thanks!
For $300 USD the 5850 is the best card you can get. It generally uses a low amount of power, but higher, I'm sure, than your 8800. Not to mention all the benefits of DX11, Eyefinity, and other newer techs.
