    LOL..Just sold my beast..Put it up for sale and it was sold within few hours of posting it :roll: Btw any idea on what gpu i should get? Not really into gaming lately..seems no fun games to play atm..So was thinking either the 9600gso or maybe the 3850 series? Recommendation are welcome :p

    For the price difference why not just get a 9600GT DDR3 512 ?

    The HD3850 will not perform as well as either of the 9600 cards mentioned ...

    Just get something cheap since you are not playing any PC games. Don't waste your money.

    well, the 9600gso is kinda cheap over here...hmm, kinda hard to decide..might even go for a 3650 or anything that has a passive cooling :/

    Yep, if you aren't going to game a lot, the HD3650 should be good enough at medium resolutions :)

    if you can w8 for some time (for new gpu to come /prices would go down on older series) if not take 9600gso

    the HD3650 is cheap. but i'd say its better buying a graphics which does more than what you need. just to be on the safe side - you never know, you might wanna play games again XD

    Well, if you don't game, even onboard graphics are good enough. Even if you want HD decoding, just get the cheapest card that can do that.

    I was going to mention that as well. My other machine I use onboard graphics and audio ... fine for movies ...

    hi there - I had a 7600gs 512meg 128it card and just sold it yesterday - I was thinking of buying the 8600GT 512meg 128bit but after reading the reviews on the 8600GT was was totally shocked - they don't talk well about the card - now I don't know what to buy - do you maybe know alot about cards?
