upgrading graphics card

  inapot69 08:05 08 Apr 2009

hello again,
just advice this time, i have a nvidia 8500gt igb graphics card and thought about maybe either upgrading to a better one or maybe buying another and utilising the sli facility, however reading a little online i see a lot of adverse comments on the "overkill" of memory crammed onto a card with an core that cant use it.
please forgive me but this is all greek to me, all i realise is that maybe the sli option may not be the best one.
i have 2gb ddr2
athlon 64 X 2 dual core cpu 4200+ 2.21Ghz
xp home (os)
any advice please.
i do play some games on it (not a dedicated gamer)
i have assassins creed which seems to be ok..
thanks in advance
