Default Re: Upgrading Mom's GPU

Apart from DX10 support the differences between a 7600GT and an 8600GT are negligible.

Not really...anddd the 8600GT is still a pretty crappy card. Terrible bang for buck compared to the rest of the GeForce X600 cards.

The 7300GS would be a decent choice. Not very much power, but at least it'll run the games. It's cheap.
