hi guys ,
i am looking for a suggestion......
i want a card that could run crysis quiet nicely(haha)
for under 90$$ (can add 10 $$ if its too good)
my configurations are
* samsung 17 inch crt
* ECS GCT945-m2 with one pci express X16 v1.0
* I gb DDR2 ram 667 mhz
* intel pentium D 925 3.0 ghz
* 160 gb hitachi hard drive
* psu with following rating
ATX 380 Watt
5v usb--->2 A
the main candidate according to myself is
* EVGA 512-P3-N954-TR GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Cardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130378
id have gone with this card blindly but this card is ddr2 so does it cut off a lot of performance??is it faster than a 8600gt?(with 256mb ddr3)
is there any ati cards equivalent to it??
i am in nepal and i want to buy it in US and again get it shipped to nepal (a friend of mine will do it for me.)..so it adds up another 30-40$$ and as im a student i have very much limited budget and i also need another gig of ram haha....and the Mail In Rebate is of no use for me .
so guys i need a decent cheap card.....if you know anything better then my choice please suggest....it could be ATI or NVIDIA.....but should run with my PSU easily(specs above)
also if you guys think a price cut is near i can wait for a month....ie i'm not in a hurry as i'm busy with my college right now
