Yeah I think I will after-all £60 won't get me far I spend more then that on alcohol in a fortnight
tahnks for doing a bit of research guys I have been mainly looking at forum postings through google and they correlate so all should be good. Better start saving pennies for the Q9450 and 260 that I want :P although nervous anticipation may make me get a Q9300, I am looking forward to 2-3 years in the future when the gtx260 is considered a good card to turn into dedicated physx like my 8800gts now is lol.
If I follow the same cycle once my 260 gets a tad slow I will add another to sli then move the 8800gts's on to a new machine think they will live for 5-6 years? Be nice if they did unfortunately I doubt it.
only 9 games support hardware physics decoding apparently so most of the time that 880gts will just be drinking power not really an issue for me but anyone doing research on this may be interested and way it up differently
