just need something in place of my 6850's temporarily as i have sold them, and wonder if its worth putting in the 8800gts, or if intel's integrated solution has cought up to that performance level now. just to do some light gaming like TF2 while i wait for my new card.
I would honestly go with the I5 if you had to pick an upgrade right away since graphics cards change faster than processor power.
no, i already have the i5, i have just sold my 2 x 6850's and need something in there temporarily until i get a new card, and have the 8800 lying around doing nothing. just need a temporary solution. and im not expecting it to play farcry3.
