Well as it's questionable if I'll ever get the dang laptop I wanted. (And thus no need to buy a wireless router)
I'm taking a look at my upgrade options. I have a nVidia Geforce 6200 /w Turbo Cache 256MB Card. It's good but it's that great. And a 300 Watt PSU.
I want to get at least a 450Watt PSU and a new Gfx card (PCIe).
I'd like to get a nvidia as ATI has a less then perfect track record with providing drivers to Open Source Operating Systems.
The lower end GF6800 (256MB) is a nice price, but for only an upgrade to 512MB for a bit of money. For a simular price the GF7600 (256MB) looks good too. The 512MB GF6800 has 256-Bit GDDR3 memory to the GF7600s 128-Bit GDDR3. But the GF7600 has a higer core clock (590Mhz) then the GF6800 cards (350Mhz). The Memory Clock diffrence is also in favor of the GF7600. (1Ghz GF6800, 1.6Ghz GF7600)
Does anyone have any advice? To me the GF7600 looks the best.
This is my computer:
I have replaced the modem /w a Audigy 4, and will be dropping the TV Tuner when I upgrade the PSU and GPU.
The XFX GeForce 7600 GT XXX is also supposed to be bundled with GRAW
