7950GX2 to 8800G-whatever ....worth it?

Recommended Posts

I've got the every-18-month itch to upgrade. See my specs below .... would the graphics card upgrade significantly improve framerates for FSX? I've read some comparisons online and it seems to help a lot with some games, but FS being more CPU-bound than most, what could I expect?Or would you recommend processor (and MB) as well? Or, should I wait a few months because there's a significant jump in technology around the corner (that I haven't read about)?

Hey KRS,Have a look here:http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/nvidia...view/page11.aspIt will give you good info incl. resolutionsAlways include your screen-resolution when asking for GPU advice ;)IMO, the best upgrade you could do, which in turn will give you quite a significant boost over you old setup, is to upgrade you system in general, going the Intel route like the Quad-cores. Then down the road upgrade you GPU.Regards,
