I mean it honestly isn't anything incredibly mind blowing...
I'm surprised he wants to play Crysis. Everyone knows that game is mediocre. Its like those cakes that are shaped like things (if you watch the food channel you'd know) but on the inside they use styrofoam...

Anyway if you ask me wait a month buy a 9800 and do the step-up program. You only have to wait a month instead of waiting 3 months for the 9900 series. If you did it now it probably won't be released before the 90 day limit runs out.

Honestly if I had your card I wouldn't be complaining >_>. Mine is so much worse.

You should just let your dad buy it. He seems to be making the decisions.

i do want to go for the 3d marck 06 forum recrd but i think that it may just be better to buy a 9800gtx and wait for the gt200 or 4*** series, alltho i do want the 3870x2... i dont know what to do guys. BAHHHH either way im spendign the same amount of cash.


or i could buy my water cooling and case.
Or you could buy nothing and save the spare cash ?
