Hi im looking to invest in a new video card for DX 10. I want to play the new DX10 games and i want to be able to max out Flight simulator x deluxe.I'm thinking about getting this card:

My budget isnt huge so this seems like a good affordable card , do you think? and will it play well with DX 10 games and FSX ?

This card can play every game out right now, at max settings.

Yes...it can play Crysis, but it would probably have some trouble, when playing at resolutions higher than 1280x1024.

If you don't mind not having the best of the best, and just wanted a DX10 card, wait until March this year. There's rumors that XFX's GeForce 8600 Ultra will be $180 (that's something like 91 pounds, and about 137 Euro, according to XE.com), so..

Yeah but would that be able to handle the new DX10 games at high settings.

I wouldn't know. I just saw this and thought I'd drop a post with my .02.

the point is......there are no DX10 games to predict that with. so why bother. just wait rather than trying to guess what will be good enough.
