    I have an 8800 gt and I am waiting for the new 300 series. I might not upgrade until they start releasing games where my card cannot handle alot of the higher settings.

    The way to save money is to buy a mid end cards and upgrade every few years when newer technology comes out like directx 11.

    Although your CPU might be bottlenecking that GPU.

    Agreed, also, save up about $100 more and you can upgrade to basically whatever is consider budget gaming computer. You will also need another copy of Windows since it's tied to your MoBo, unless you want to pirate.
