Ok... I'm confused.

Im gonna order my new graphic card soon, so which one is best?

8800 GT
8800 GTS
8800 GTX
9600 GT

I thought the GTX was the best, but I'm not sure after reading what Ovi posted a few pages back...  :-\

8800 is better than the 9600 (i think)
wait for the 9800 to come out

I'm going to be buying a new computer soon and I need help. Can anyone tell me if these following games work on Vista.

-The Sims 2 (and all of the expansion packs)
-Sim City 4: delux edition
-RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 (platonum edition)
-Age of Empires 3 (and all of the expansion packs)
-Guild Wars: Nightfall

The reason I ask is that i dont know if I should upgrade to Vista yet or stick with XP. If the majority of the games I play won't even work on Vista then i'll just stay with XP.
Right on

Honestly I don't think vista is that special..but in response to your question, I think that Vista can play all those games. At least, I'm pretty sure it can. I've never had compatibility problems with it...
They're collectible! Sorta...

What did Ovi say?

I put the 8800 GTX in mine and it works great. I think the 8800GTS works as well for less money if thats an issue. Be sure you know how much power your power supply uses, mine was 300W and the card ended up have a recommendation of 450W so I had to change that too. It's all working great now.
