need help choosing a new vid card

Recommended Posts

I've had great luck with MSI video cards, and the last three of four video cards I've purchased for myself have been based on the nVidia gpu (the lone hold out was my beloved ATi X1900XT).

 

So, based on my experience with nVidia gpu's, and MSI specifically, I'd have to whole heartedly agree with your pending purchase.

 

Now I'll have to add a disclaimer......

 

I don't have any personal experience with the latest 9600 series of cards, but everything that I've read seems to shed a fairly favorable light on the card. So I don't think you can go wrong at that price point.

 

If you have an extra $30 to spend then it might be wise to spring for the 8800GT though.

The MSI is super. I know a few people that purchased it and love it.

 

I was in a similar situation myself a few weeks ago, and went with the MSI 8800GT because I thought with my older 939 system the extra gpu power of the 8800GT engine would be a better compliment.

After a very long time comparing, reading reviews, and benchmarks.

The 9600 gt is not even on my radar.....

 

Heres why i chose the EVGA 512-P3-N801-AR GeForce 8800GT

1- It will run all my games better then the 9600 gt.

2- The EVGA 8800 gt is cheaper then the MSI gt after rebates

3- Awesome benchmarks that are very close to the 400$ 8800 GTX! :D

4- In my price range of 160$ after rebate.:cool:
