P5N-D 1.XX GPU : NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+ Processor :2.40 gigahertz Intel Core2 Quad --- Multi-core (4 total) 6 gigs of ram Is my system that I've been running since the 9800gtx came out , i was just wondering what is the next level after the 9800 ? Like if i wanted to see a nice jump in performance but nothing astronomical since i don't have very much money what would i buy for this set up ? Not opposed to Xfiring relatively cheap cards, since i was told my system could do that back in the day !
