Hi there,

It depends, really...

Do you have an SLI-ready power supply and motherboard? Are you running games and finding that you could do with more graphics power, and it is the bottleneck you wish to eliminate?

Cheers

Yeah i have a 600W DarkSide Black PSU and a ASUS M2N-SLI Motherboard and with the graphics issue, i see games being made that require a nicer video card and the 9600 GT XXX video cards are cheap to get, but i dont know if it will improve the performance enough to make a difference.

Thanks

Hi there,

If you're happy with the current performance of your system, then I would suggest to save up for now. When you find there are newer games coming out and your card can't keep up, then purchase a new card for the money you have saved.

Replace your old card with the new one you have purchased, then you may wish to sell the old one off second hand to contribute to the funds you used to buy a new good one in the first place.

Cheers

Troy
