Default Re: I need a better video card

Spend a couple bucks more and get this
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies
Newegg.com - BFG Tech BFGEGTX260896OCE GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

If you are looking to play GTA4, you'll probably want the extra ram and shaders that the 260 has over the 250. The 250 is basically just a renamed 9800GTX, and having had both cards, i can tell you the 260 is a much better card.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies has a slightly bigger rebate, but the same out of pocket cost as the 650.

Nothing to see here.
