    IGP doesn't count as a graphics card. It's just a video controller with 3d support. And that 8600gt is kinda outdated. Planning on getting a new GPU?

    Geforce 4400MX 64mb?
    Geforce FX 5200 128mb
    Geforce 8500GT 256mb

    and a Geforce 9800GTX+ 512mb ordered, should be here in a bit ;)

    I'm confused lol? do you run several rigs with same GFX cards? build several rigs for friends? REALLY unlucky with DOA cards?

    I mean you've a total of 12 identical cards there?!?! Anywho, my short history:


    Geforce2 MX440
    Radeon 9600XT
    GeForce 8600GT
    Radeon HD4830


    hmm... looks like it's nvidia's turn again next time :p I get "idiot of the century" award for paying FULL price a few weeks after launch for the 8600GT (£120)

    Yea, what wrong with the 8800GTX? With the selling of my 3870, im practically getting it for £30. Seems good to me. And im new (ish) to all this enthusiast stuff, so an upgrade like that should teach me some stuff.

    I think with the money I spent on 4850 crossfire setup I could have bought a 4870x2 with BAH IM STUPID.

    ^^ don't feel too bad, there isn't a huge enough difference between 4870x2 and 4850 crossfire to make you cry yet, + you can always sell individual cards later on or if u need to upgrade, sell one, keep one and use it :)

    onboard - empire earth
    mx400 - GTA: San Andreas becomes playable!!
    fx 5200 -finally able to play cs:s rofl!
    8500 gt - tf2
    8500gt sli - epic fun
    8800gt - woot
    8800gt sli - EPIC WOOT
    4850 - My first Pencil mod
    4850 crossfire - My first headache caused by drivers -_-, but I broke 21k in 3dmark06 :D
     
    random says thanks.
