i tend to agree with you but i also think knowing his sys specs would lead to a more informed decision. if he is running something relatively slow then a cpu/ram upgrade along with something like the 6600 or 9800 would give him better all around performance. of course the old "look honey, i have this wonderful 6800gt but the rest of my system is holding it back" thing does have its benefits.:evil: do not know why my wife still allows me to do it.:hmm: but if gaming is all you are really interested in then yes you are right.
