So, you want me to change my mind and blindly accept what you believe to be true. But why you don't change your mind and accept that 9800GTX+ is overall as good as HD4850 ?

And it seems that you are trying to attack me personally instead of proving your arguments.

Then don't. (Actually this would be better to me, because I won't waste my time with you)

I'm not a fanboy of either ATI or Nvidia. I've owned mostly Nvidia cards, actually.

* TNT2 32MB, FX5200 128MB, 6200 256MB, 7900 GT 256MB, 7900 GT 512MB, 7950 GT 256MB, 8800 GTS 320MB, 8800 GT 512MB (675 stock), 2 x 3870, 2 x 4870
I even wrote a voltmod guide for the 7900/7950 GT's, and got ~750MHZ overclocks on them

You, on the other hand, are an Nvidia/Intel fanboy. plain and simple. That's why I don't change my mind based on what you say.

I'm just calling a spade a spade.
You always, always argue with a bias, and if I so much as mention a different opinion, you'll try forcing me to debate
If I do debate, you'll call me a fanboy. And if I don't, you'll say it's because I can't support the arguments.
And if I do prove my arguments, you'll still try and pick little details apart, or cherrypick benchmarks, while derailing the thread.

That is why I don't want to debate with you, and why I won't take you seriously.
I will listen to reason from an unbiased person, but you are not an unbiased person.

I don't think that HD4850 is slightly better that 9800GTX+

I know some people could post some reviews that shows HD4850 being better than 9800GTX+

But I have also seen reviews that show 9800GTX+ being better than HD4850 overall

EDIT: You can get GTX 260 for $169.99 after MIR

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

hey thanks man, its funny cause far cry 2 and crysis are the games I'm trying to play, thats why I'm upgrading, but really though will that card run on my system? from what im reading its a pretty big card also will it fit in my stock case....I only have one pci slot...it doesnt take two does it? and sorry for starting an argument, if I did seem like you both got bad blood....world is too small for that, anyways. Maroon1 thanks for that reply....i think i wanna go with nvidia no matter what, just cause it's all I've ever run, and overclocking is easy from what i know. Who knows I could defiantly be wrong....I just dont wanna go buy something that will not run on my system.

PCI slots are useless. What you need is a PCI-Express slot.

ok the only difference i see between the two is that the pci-E has plug ins on both top and bottom on the card and the pci only has one plug in.....how can i tell what i got?

so will this one work? im assuming no..if the other one wont.

EVGA Geforce 7600 GT KO

im assuming i got pci-e considering its a new computer

ok now that u posted the other picture i understand it has 3 little cards in the pci and only 2 in the pci-e
