Yeah, I figure I'll need to upgrade the PSU if I get this card (it just so happens a BFG GS 550W one is on sale for $30 :->). I wonder if this is a good buy at this price point? (faster, better, cheaper, lower power recommendations welcome :->)
Well, right now it's 1280x1024. But it could be due for an upgrade (some pretty good prices on monitors this boxing day.. although a monitor is something I'll never buy online.. need to see it in action first).
I have many more than 3 posts.. but the forums changed at some point recently? And I guess the old posts are all gone.. probably none of them would be particularly useful/relevant for anyone, anyway.
If your going for a monitor upgrade soon , a 4890 with the BFG power supply is perfect for you at 180$ total. If you want to save some money, you could get a hd4770 and skip the power supply. The hd4770 will still be twice as fast as a 8600gt. 4770's go for about 110$ and don't use much power.
