I am sure most people are fed up with answering questions about graphics cards atm with the release of the new ati range and all the confusion with nvidia's however i have to ask one more. so apologies to those already at breaking point. My current spec is as follows; CPU: Intel Q6700 @ 3.6Ghz Motherboard: DFI LP LT-X48-T2R iX48 S775 GPU: 512M GIGABYTE ATI HD3870 GDDR4 @ 825Mhz/1150Mhz RAM: 2 X 2G OCZ Reaper-X pc2-8000 @ 1066Mhz HDD: 500G SAMSUNG SATA2 HD501LJ PSU:CORSAIR HX 520W MODULAR PSU. Now with that cleared up. I am looking to udrage my GPU as my trusty 3870 is now a little long in the tooth. I currently play my games at 1680x1050 on my 22" monitor. At this resolution there is little point in me buying a 5850 or higher as it would most likely be wasted and i very rarely game on my 52" tv. The titles that i currently enjoy playing are pretty much the usual jumble. COD4, Grid, Empire TW, oh and not forgetting X3. So i will want something i can plug in and run everything at my required rating at max (although this may be hard on the empire front). I have no real affinity for either camp although i would lean more to ati due to having a bad experience with Nvidia back in the FX days. Despite having a crossfire capable board i have never been enamoured by the idea however should a bargain arise i could be swayed assuming my psu could take it. So now the crux of the matter please could i have your 2 pence worth to help me decide. Stank you for your patience. And thank your for any advice you may have.
