I need a new graphic card. Right now I'm using MSI 8600 GTS. So here is some quick questions..


Should i buy a Gainward GTS 250?

If I buy it, is it best to run both 8600 and 250?

Thanks in advance :)

it all depends on the price and no, you can't run a 8600gts and a gts250

The price is about 106 pounds. I guess it's my 8600 that is too old?

Could use the GTS as a PhysX card. Might want to double check that the 5750 isn't around the same price. You might want to get that card instead.

The GTS 250 is a decent midrange card, a huge upgrade from your 8600 GT.


I would just sell your 8600 GT on ebay and use the extra money for another upgrade.

Yes, I think I'll do that. I could use the money for another RAM card. I'm running on 3 Gb 800 Mhz and 1 Gb 667 Mhz.. :ange:

yeah its very good but I suggest HD 5770. GTX 260/HD 4870 performance aswell as DX 11, eyefinity etc etc.

I would pull out the 1GB 667mhz stick, its actually slowing down your 800mhz RAM since your computer will set speeds according to the slowest stick.

I know that. That's why I want to buy another 1 Gb ram with 800 Mhz


And thanks for all the answers guys :)

What?

Both the 5770 and 4870 are leaps and bounds faster, don't use those cards int he sentabnce after the new drivers.

(Or even before)
