  1. What graphics card should i get

    im on a tiny budget.

    my missus is getting me a g5 mouse to replace my broken g7 and a graphics card. leading me to my question.
    Should i get a 9500gt or an 8600 gt

    links to the ones i have found are:

    8600gt http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... turer_id=0

    9500gt http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... -t95g-yalg

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... 5teh2p-fsr

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... v9500gt1gb

    http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.a ... 500gt512mb

    i know nothing about this sort of stuff so if anyone can tell me which card to order ill get on to it and i cant afford a better card so please don't suggest that.:P

    All those links are "403 FORBIDDEN"

    I would suggest you buy my old 9600GT

    -EDIT: The only fault with this card is you will get around 40 FPS with spammy servers (32 slot) and in the worst of the worst it goes down to 15 or 30 (15 at the very start of the round where EVERYONE is spamming.)

    I'm guessing this is going to be close to your price range and if you want ill sell you my old one for £45 :D

    links now fixed.

    id rather get a brand new card to be honest. makes shipping cheaper considering im getting the mouse at the same time otherwise id snap it out of your hands.

    Hehe no problem but the 9600 GT is a great card i had it since i first got this computer about 2 years ago and its worked with every game that i've played :)

    EDIT: Also tbh if i was you I'd save up a little and get a better card in like a month, unless your current card is completely fried.

    its basically as a tie me over card until i can afford to build a beast in sept. the card i currently have is a 7300gs and it really struggles with everything. your card is so tempting but means the mouse costs me more putting me out of budget

  7. Re: What graphics card should i get

    8600GT would be fine

    btw my old one was XFX GeForce 8400 GS, it works brillant, really love, work on crysis on low settings :o

    ^^ good one around your budget, plus you can get it cheaper on other site.

    my new one is XFX 9600 GT OC i bought it cos i had a deal :D this is a really good graphics card too. crysis on high settings.

    bad news, it over budget for you as you on a budget limit
  8. Re: What graphics card should i get

    i ordered the 9500 gt as it was about a 15% performance increase over the 8600gt.

    fkn nice sig fast john. kimi is the man tho im more of a massa fan.

    either way Ferrari are the bees knees, roll on the 2009 season i cant wait
  9. Re: What graphics card should i get

    I like both of them, massa did brilliant this year. :)

    yea 2009, some changes to the f1 cars and 19 tracks.
    it not long 3 months to go to 2009 season

    i hope honda gets a buyer otherwise it down to 18 drivers

    Re: What graphics card should i get

    I thought F1 was getting scraped due to the credit crunch and the fact that they spend ridiculous amounts on the cars, also its funny how they made them to fast so they had to change the tracks to have more corners xD.
  11. Re: What graphics card should i get

    Aslong as the big car makes are in F1 it will live on, can't wait untill it comes to Donington. Free f1 tickets ftw.
    Get an ati card, keeps you nice and warm in the winter and there cheap.
