    So my girlfriend has spore and wants to get a video card. She currently just has onboard graphics. I was wanting to get a new video card and just sell her mine.

    Is a 8600GT 512MB eVGA Superclocked card enough to play that game on highest settings with decent frame rates or would she be better off getting something newer? Also, whats a fair price for it, I was thinking $30...


    BTW, her computer is as follows:
    - ASRock ConRoe1333-D667 R1.0 Intel 945GC Micro ATX
    - E6750 CPU
    - G.Skill 2x512MB DDR2 PC5400
    - Corsair 520HX
    (she may also double her RAM while she's at it but thats undecided, newegg still carries the same RAM kit she has for just $20)

    She insists on paying for it since I've given her hard drives and stuff in the past....

    i have the 8800GTS 512 and it runs spore perfectly at max settings, 1680x1050... so i think the 8600 will do just fine.

    I make that much in an hour. If I were you and she wanted to pay me, I'd at least exchange it for a sexual favor or something.
