Its really going fast now with both chips and DirectX releases.

Lets just not hope it gets more expensive.

not sure what you guys are talking about. Just because a new one comes out means you throw your old one out that same day.

My 8800GTS 640meg card plays things just fine.

graphics cards used to have a 6-8 month cycle and you could stretch for a year easily back when i was into pc games and now it seems as though your card is obsolete before it is even unboxed

it really is too expensive to keep upgrading which i why im still playing pc games from years past

CrippleH3641d ago

very true.

The jump from 2800 series to 3800 series jumped way to fast.
Even the jump to 4800 series was fast.

You don't have to upgrade.

My 8800 GTS for 2 years back still runs the latest games at high settings.

It runs Dawn of War II beautifully maxed out. I get 30 to 60 FPS at 1680x1050.

theres no need to be on the latest edge... nvidias 8800's and ati's 4850 or 3870 are still just fine for the time being(unless crysis on max). I myself like to be somewhere above average with 2 4870's and a quad core, but thats completely unnecessary for most.

However, just do as best as you can, you know.

Didnt MS say that Vista would support DX11? And there hasnt even been a true DX10 game released and yet they are now talking about DX11 video cards. I dont see any point in upgrading graphics cards every 6 months when there are hardly any PC games to play thanks to internet piracy. I think I will just stick with my 8800GTX for a while there arent any reasons for an upgrade yet.

TheIneffableBob3641d ago

True DX10 game? What's that supposed to mean?

Anyway, Far Cry 2 has the best implementation of DX10 I've seen so far. With DX10 enabled, there's a large performance boost and a slight improvement in image quality, though some shadow filtering looks a little finnicky at a distance.

That is one ignorantly asinine post.

Microsoft said their going to be bringing DX11 to Vista also. But obviously not until Windows 7 is released.

You don't need to upgrade your GPU every 6 months lol. Do you upgrade your console every 6 months? No? That's what I thought. So why should you need to with your GPU? It's just like a console, it performs the same always. The new high end GPU's are mainly for PC enthusiast's who like to have the latest and best, and have the money for it.

There have been many DX10 games out already, and many good PC games over the past years. But you obviously wouldn't know that since your are most likely a flaming console fanboy.

DirectX 11 will work on any DirectX 10 hardware.

What kinda crap are you throwing around about no PC games? There are plenty of them and PC market is full of healthy online games. Not to mention 2009's upcoming games. << PC Games of 2009. There is alot of them.
