I just ordered a new 22" LCD monitor. And I don't know what to upgrade next. I am looking for a 100$ upgrade, so i can buy it for myself as a Christmas present.
8800gs to a 8800gt is not a worth wile upgrade neither is going to a GF gt240 or ATI HD4670 since both those cards perform on level with 8800GS/9600GSO/9600GT. The lowest worthwhile upgrade would be GF 250GTS or HD4850 but I would be looking at something like HD4870/90 HD5770 or GF 260GTX for some wow factor.
