    Default Updating my graphics adapter

    I've had an NVidia 8600 GT for ages. It runs ok, but many games run like shiite.

    I'm in the midst of upgrading to an AMD 7870, and according to videocardbenchmark.net, the speed ratings are as follows:

    8600 GT - 260
    7870 - 4,032

    That should do OK.

    Just a small amount of an increase in performance. Crank her up.

    I just upgraded from a 6950 to 7970 and the power reduction is AMAZING. Now my bedroom is cold at night where it used to get overly hot, and not just because my wife is smokin!

    i also notice nice smooth video on all games now where some used to hiccup a bit with the 6950. (still kicked ass though)
