    I was thinking of upgrading my video card for now, but I was told that with my current setup I would not have the processing power to fully make use of the card. Any thoughts?

    Re: plasma for pc gaming?

    Hey again, the moving resolution describes the lines of resolution when watching a non-still image. So with your use, you will only be getting 900 lines of resolution.

    Going with ATI will take away the multi-card config. the GTX 460, GTX 470, and GTX are all great options. The ATI 6950 can be unlocked to a 6970, which will give you quite a boost as well, but is...

    The only reason I left it out is because of the price. I can get the 560 and 470 for about the same price, the 470 being roughly $10 cheaper and the 6950 is roughly $50. Now $50 isnt much buts that...

    Re: Upgrading Video Card

    I can hold out if the card is worth it. Whats the price point of the GTX 560? I heard it's supposed to be ~280. Where does the performance rank? Should it be a better or worse performer than the 480?
