OK, well first of all, I don't know if this is the right place for this or if this is supposed to be in the computer build thread, but I have a question about getting a new video card.
My current system specs are: Athlon 64 3800+, 2.something GB DDR-400 RAM, 7600GT
I want to build a new computer pretty soon, and I saw this
deal on a 9600GSO. The really good part about this deal is that it comes with Call of Duty World at War, which I could then sell (not interested in game), and bring the price down to around $20. So my question is, would this card improve my current gaming performance (say in Team Fortress 2), or is it mainly my CPU that's holding me back at this stage?
(This is the first thread I've made, so sorry if I did something wrong...)
Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
That being said, I would actually advise against buying a 9600. Its cheap, but you can get much better performance for not much more money, and if you were thinking of building a new computer pretty soon, I'd spring for a better card.
