Would a 8800gs be much of an upgrade with my cpu. The 8800gs seems so cheap now that it would not cost much to get one if I sold my 1950Pro. Any links to benchmarks between the two would be helpful. I game at 1024x768 or 1280x1024 depending on the game.
I doubt that a dual-core 2.6GHz cpu is going to bottleneck an 8800GS or even a 4850.Originally posted by: Foxery
The 8800 is a newer generation product than the 1950, and has a slight benefit of more RAM (384 vs 256), but as you noted, the rest of your system is likely to hold it back.
For what it's worth, the Radeon 3850/512MB and 3870s can be had for almost the same price. Similar performance range, even more RAM, and you could stick with the same brand.
That's a very good deal. You can't get any better than that.
