I'm thinking about buying the GeForce 8500GT with 256MB DDR2 RAM. I don't have enough money to buy the 8600 or above, and the 8500 fits well into my price range. Is this a good card? Will it play the latest games? Are there any cards in the same price range which could give me better performance?
Basically, I'd like to play Hellgate, Crysis, Gears of War, MOH: Airborne, etc etc. What performance ratio on a scale of 1-10 can the 8500GT give me?
Thanks in advance,
