While I'm here, I might as well ask a question of you graphics genius'. I currently have an EVGA 9800GTX+ (which in it's time and still today is an excellent card), but I am looking to upgrade it to a newer card. Any suggestions on what I should be looking at? I paid about $120 for the 9800GTX+ and I'd like to stay in that price range. Also, I know how to read the specs of the cards to verify if it is compatible with my system and if I'll need to upgrade anything or not, just looking for some suggestions from you guys. If I took the time, I could figure this out on my own, but to be honest, I don't HAVE the time and even if I did, I'd rather save some of it by getting a suggestion on where to start looking. Thank you.
Thanks for the input, jaydeejohn. I doubt I'll be willing to fork out the bucks for a new card (One that is actually CAPABLE of replacing my 9800GTX+ won't come cheap, I can tell you that already). In the confusing video card market, newer is not always better. To be honest, I usually always am a generation or two behind when it comes to graphic cards. I just can't justify the price difference of a good older generation card to the price of a newer card with a few more bells and whistles.
Yeah, just looked that up on Newegg. It's floating a little over the $200 mark...not bad for a few generations jump like that. That's a fairly newer card, isn't it? Might scan the specs and pick it up, if compatible. Thanks guys. Been a big help.
