    Hello, befor I purchase this video card I wanted to know how much of an upgrade would..


    ..be over my current 9200SE Radeon? I mean, would it be a dramatic upgrade or a slight upgrade, would I be able to notice the huge improvement? If not, what about this video card.


    Should I save for another $50 and grab the one above? Or maybe grab this 7600GT, but looking at the memory bandwith the 6800GS(33gb/sec) > 7600(22gb/sec)GT but the 7600GT also has 1400 memory clock..

    Can someone please help me out here? I'd greatly appreciate it if you would pick out a video card that would improve my gaming performance by quite a bit. Also if you may, please confirm what I need to connect the monitor to the video card(VGA? is my current connector I think, excuse me ;()

    I'm sitting on a budget of $240-$290.

    Thanks for your reply bro, but I must go under my budget now down to $230 due to school :(. So you're sure I should grab the 6800gs? it seems decent after comparing it to the 7800GS so I think i'll grab that if someone else can vouche. Thanks ahead of time..

    Just like viper_boy403, I'm a huge fan of the 6800GS by XFX. When I first saw how high the framerates were on my brother's XFX GF6800GS-AGP, I had to have that card. I currently run a pair of XFX-GF6800GS-PCIe SLI cards and I'm a very contented gamer.:)
