  1. Re: Anybody think Fermi will get any better with new drivers?

    Nah, fermi would still sell without being the fastest card, allot of people love the brand everything else falls secondary in that case, kinda like Intel & AMD loyalists or WD & Seagate loyalists.

    AM3 isn't worth the upgrade from what you have but a newer Agena based cpu would definitely be an improvement.
