I have a Nvidia 9800gt Ive had it for about 2 years now it's pretty solid but design is getting dated.  I was looking at getting one of those GTX 570 beasts so I can have 3 monitors.  I was just wondering if anyone has something comparable and what they think of it.

I have the "slim" Dell Inspiron so I got the ATI Rad 4350 for dual monitors purpose; great to do work on one and scores on the other

Is it a full size card or a one of the smaller ones ?

Dude never get an ATI card.

Nvidia trumps ATI every time.

I used to own the Nvidia 6800 gt. Which came out in 2004 or something and I used it up until 2008 when I stopped gaming and now I actually just bought this laptop 2 weeks ago. Greatest deal ever.

Easily one of the, if not the most powerful laptops out right now. GTX 460m

Check it out:

it's one of those smaller size one since my desktop is the Dell slim model 

not the best choice in video card but it was the only kind available at my local store and I do not want to wait for delivery...but so far I'm satisfied with it considering how little I paid for it.

Yeah I know those slim cases can be a pain.  My buddy has one and he wants my old card and he can't even fit it in.

 

Can't go wrong with that kind of value though.

Yeah I've heard of it, it's powerful as hell. Do you run games on your computer or movie production software or something?

Mostly Just games but I do want to get into some video editing, or multimedia.

I used to play CS and DOD both source and regular.  Aso some COD and I really like the Red Orchestra series but they have very little dedicated players.

What about you Stiln ?
