APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Probably within the next couple of months.
BUDGET RANGE: Preferably $150 or less after rebates.
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, primarily FPS (Red Orchestra 2 when it comes out) and also some RTS (SC2) in 1440 x 900 res with decent settings (AA would be nice for example, never have had a card powerful enough though).
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: ATI Radeon HD3400 Series (Not sure if its 3450 or 3470), power supply is 280W.
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU-- Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 @2.66GHz (Rated @ 5.00GHz+), 4.0 GB RAM, Operating System-- MS Windows Vista Business 32-bit SP2
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Amazon, Newegg, doesn't really matter
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
PARTS PREFERENCES: None
OVERCLOCKING: Don't have any experience would probably use ATI's built in "Overdrive" or EVGA's OC tool on an EVGA NVIDIA card, but that's all I'd be able to do.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe, though I doubt it falls under my price range.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440 x 900 (75 hz refresh rate)
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Thanks for your help everyone. I'm new to this website, hopefully I followed the proper format. I just want a better card than the one I have that will compliment the rest of my comp. The only thing I see that my be a bottleneck is my PSU right? Let me know if you think I need to upgrade that too.
