I was wondering how I should decide what video card to purchase. I currently have a 7600gt and I was thinking about an 8600gt. There are a few that I have in mind and I was wondering what I should be most concerned about, the Core Clock, the Clock Speed, the Memory Size, or the Memory Interface. Note: The memory types are all GDDR3. One of the cards is $30 more than the other so I am assuming it is $30 faster-am I right or wrong about that?Thank you.

I would say to go with the new released 8800 GT ( 512 mb ) These things are clocked at 670, ( you can get one at Newegg.com for $300. Get the one with a core clock of 670 ) With this, you could probably run Crysis on medium or better settings. You should take all of those things into consideration when purchasing a Vid Card. It's not always better if it's more expensive.
