The reason I suggest this is that there are some really great cards coming out in the near future..and if you have the money to burn getting just ONE of them will be worth your interest.

Good Luck



Its pretty difficult to get a 'strong source' for info when it comes to this stuff, sometimes.

My best suggestions would be to sit on google and read any article you can find on it..while that doesn't guarantee you perfect knowledge, you'll at least be up to par with the rest of us misfits
Link to the gtx 260 core 216 superclocked for under 100 bucks Please. I would definitely jump on that deal.
