-={Stalwart Death}=-So do games just use the graphics card's RAM or they use both [insert confused face]

Both. The graphics card ram is used for rendering the actual image that you seen on the screen. The system ram is used for running everything else like the actual game program and all the behind the scenes stuff.

But if i can really use DDR3 Graphics card, i was thinking of getting -PowerColor HD 3850 HDMI DDR3 256MB ($229 in my country's price)

I have a HD 3850, they really are good cards. They can almost match the old 8800GTS 320MB in alot of games. What country are you in? (for pricing and such?)

If you are in Australia, I found a Gigabyte 9600GT for AU $226.00. Otherwise the price Foodmaniac had listed was in US dollars.

One Singapore dollar equals roughly .72 US dollars (as of Friday). So adjusting for the currency difference, the prices you listed sound just a little high when compared to US prices. However, I can't find anything cheaper than that from an sg website. There is one other model of video card you might want to consider: the 8800GS. It's performance is right around the same as the other two listed, and is cheaper than both.

Well i think 263 dollars is a pretty decent price for a 9600GT. Most other higher or equal performance cards costs like 300+ here.

Curse our business men, 'sides this is probably the best priced card other that the HD 3850 which sounded awesome from both reviews and its name itself =p

i mean, 9600 !?!? it sounds like a freak turned up version of a 360 (xbox intended) just try it. Say nine sixty hundred it sounds more awe-inspiring than a threee sixty.

Well, from the prices you gave us, the cheaper HD 3850 would be a better buy if you ask me. Either way it will still be a huge step up from crappy X300 you have. I had a X300 for a little bit, and it was horrible....

Atleast the X300 could play Prince of Persia : TTT with just fine graphics without lag 'cept for those really smokey areas or the transformation.

C&C 3 seemed to work fine with average graphics :)

But it is time to move on, BRING ON THE BIG GUNS!!!
