New Graphics Card
Posted 01 November 2007 - 05:12 AM
When the box came, it was not selaphane wrapped, it was in the original box with a sticker closing the lid. And the antistatic bag was not sealed. Do you think I should send it back and get an X1950pro....
Help me out guys, I think I dun a boo boo.
And I know I`m only on here a few months at a time, I`ll try to be here more often. I promise.

I just built my system last year and already I had to upgrade my graphics card to prepare for the upcoming new games, such as COD 4, BioShock and Crysis Ahhhh, wonderful world of gaming, they eat your budget faster than you can say upgrade.

I`m a tight budget gamer, and I believe all the hardware I`ve bought, albeit they may have been cheap; out of it I have always had a machine that gave me great performance by bang for pound choices. Check out my spec below, it may not seem like an uber machine. Believe it or not it only cost me 300 british pounds (give or take a few) to build and I`m very happy with it.
By the time I`ve completed all the games I`ve got a couple of times over and grown tired of them, it`l be time for my next upgrade, and I`ll completely rebuild my machine ready for the next line of games.
I know I`m rambling on, so I`ll sign off.....................

If I do buy a new card, it won't be before Star Craft 2 and that will probably be the last performance graphics card I ever purchase.

Computer games never consider this, they are just developed for the high performance, and players always need to care about their display cards, etc, and buy new ones.

The thing I hate most is I just dumped $2000 into the system in my sig with shipping and everything about 19 months ago and now the stuff in it is basically worthless. The newer games today will bring it to its knees and it needs at the very least a GPU update and couldn't hurt to have a new motherboard, CPU and ram.
PS3 and 360 games are $59 each, but even if you buy 30 games (which is a lot) your still only spending on average an extra 450 odd dollars or so then buying it for the PC. Then you have to consider initial PC investment and and then consider upgrade investments, that far outweighs the 450$ even if you only consider CPU, GPU and memory alone.
The computer has its uses though, and mine isn't going anywhere. It will just be a while before I rebuild this system.
