Upgrade worth from 7900GT 256mb to 9600GT?

Recommended Posts

I'm considering doing an upgrade to my graphics card. Currently I have a 7000GT 256MB and was thinking of going for the 9600GT. I know I could go for something even better but I don't really want to spend too much. CPU is Intel E6600 and I have 2GB of RAM. Would the FPS improvement in FSX be worth it? I also use a TH2go set up.

Answer is: Two thumbs up.Better fps, smoother, and runs cooler.Worth $150... well to me, yes. This finally has my system running the way I wanted it to all along :(
