New graphics card again

  iqs 17:20 28 Aug 2008


I currently have a BFG 8800GT 512MB OC card,I must admit it handles COD4 superbly,and Crysis very well.
But I have noticed a few problems with the foreground graphics in Crysis.

I have seen the BFG 260 and 280 cards,expensive I know,but how good are they,and are they worth the investment ?.

Many thanks

or a new card that can handle Crysis and other demanding games with ease please

Go for an 8800GTX if you can, prices have fallen, and it will run Crysis fine. I use 2 in SLI mode with Vista and the 260 280's are overpriced and a not much better yet.

Hi citadel,

I recently posted a thread regarding updates for Crysis,but was unsure which patch and web site to download from.

I found one,but it listed 3 updates.Do I download one or all?.
Any help here is appreciated.
