Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 (bought recently second hand on ebay)
2 GB DDR2 RAM
ASRock G31M-VS2 (bought new one as my old one died)
8500gt (old and dying)
I'm Stuck here,should i buy a 8800gt for this setup?
Or should i save a bit further for the new rig(entire system including monitor) that i plan to buy this november having ivybridge and 22nm GPU when prices go down.
I'm cant wait for such a long time with this crappy gpu,i play games like assassins creed brotherhood,battlefield 2 , call of duty 4 ,skyrim etc.
Would a 8800gt do me good for the while as ones available for $70 online which is the most i can afford right now,dont wanna spend much on this old pc,and cant extend my budget.
Don't spend that much on a 8800gt, look for a 6670 to hold you over for a little while until you are ready to upgrade your monitor/the rest of your build. They are pretty close in performance, but the 6670 sips power and doesn't require an auxiliary power connector. They can be found for about the same price. It will be plenty for 1024x768.
