Love the thread guys. Lots of great points made and a question that everyone wants answering. I can see that over the months as new hardware comes out we will continue to revisit this question in various forms...
What is the best graphics card to get right now?
What is the best processor to get right now?
With so many factors to consider, from price to performance to availabilty to compatibility I am sure many people will enjoy reading everyones opinions. The more questions and answers the better. If you have a question you can bet your ass that hundreds of other gamers will also have the same question bubbling away in their mind and maybe a few others will have that awesome answer we all crave.
So if you are average Joe gamer reading this forum I implore you, don't sit back quietly, slip on your hardware geek hat and register on the forum and shoot the breeze with us. We love to hear what you have to say.
