This is my set up:
OS: Windows XP
Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula Special Edition
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 (3000MHz)
RAM: 4x 1GB Corsair PC2 - 8500 (1066MHz)
and for GPU a BFG GeForce 8800 OC (768 Mb DDR3)
The graphics card recently stopped working and I'm sending it to be repaired but I'm debating just flat out upgrading because I plan to get a 24" 1080p monitor to replace my super old 19". Would the 8800 be able to handle gaming at 1920x1080?
It's two years old and the like but even though most consider it legendary it's starting to really show its age. There are graphics cards that would give you a lot of power gor that display. But it's going to cost <$200.
Not in this day & age, the 8800 Ultra's been relinquished to terrorizing sub - $100 cards.
It'll still beat a 4850, and it's not that far off a 4870. Since the OPs is an overclocked Ultra, it might even equal the 4870 in many games. Is it the monster it once was? No. That doesn't make it worthless though, and it's certainly remarkably competitive considering its age.
