After years of great gaming with an 8800GTX it finally went out and I am now stuck using a old geforce fx 5200. Since I need a new video card for my system I would like to know what is recommended. I would like to know what video card you guys recommend for a gaming res of 1680x1050. This is off topic, but I am also considering upgrading my CPU from a Q6600 to a E8500 although I could swear that I got a major performance boost when I went from a 2.4Ghz Core2Duo I forget the model to a Q6600 G0 in crysis. I would like advice on this from other gamers. Is it worth the change for game performance? My most played games are: Fallout 3, Mass Effect, and Witcher Enhanced.
