Well, I'll be doing some upgrading and swapping when I build my parents their computer here in a few days, and one thing on the list is a new vid card. I just want to make sure that they will work with my current board right now though, as I play to stick with it. Here's my plan:
I'm going to get an ATI 3870 as the price/performance ratio in my mind just blows nvidia out of the water (don't get me wrong, I'm not a fanboy of ATI). However, these are newer cards and my board's almost a year old now and I just wanna see which card works best, and if it will work with my board. Keep in my I have XP, and all these new cards keep saying DX10? Will it still work??
Here's what I am debating...
Sapphire for $156
MSI for $163
Diamond for $158
Sapphire for $160
And this is the board it will go it
Thanks to all for the help
