Something that is significantly better than a ATI redeon 1650, I was thinking of getting the Nvidia SLI geforce 8800gtx, Does any one have any suggestions or recommendations?
Depends how much you wanna spend?
is there a big performance difference between the gtx and the gt? Because after seeing the price difference I think I'm starting to side with the gt.
oh, and is it significantly faster than a readeon x1650?
IM looking for something I can find somewhere for less than 300$
There is a significant difference between the GT and GTX. The GTX is 384Bit in comparison to the GT which is 256Bit. The GTX has a much higher bandwidth which is good for gaming on those high res'. As for the x1650, both the GTX and GT could easily destroy it.
I just got told about the Radeon HD 3870, it's well within your price range and comes very close to the GT. (it's a fair bit cheaper than the GT) The 3870 is also a lot more efficient in the power department and supports DX10.1.
Out of all these cards, the GTX is the most powerful, but for it's price, the Radeon HD 3870 is definetly the way to go.
what are the specs of your pc? you need to look at it first!

I agree, your current CPU can bottleneck those cards
This is one of the best deals I've seen lately, 8800GT, superclocked, and Crysis included. Evga also puts a lifetime warranty on this one: [COLOR=blue]Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N802-A3 GeForce 8800GT Superclocked 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail[/COLOR] The only problem is it's currently out of stock, in fact I have yet to see anyone with it in stock right now.
