My brother in-law is in need of a new GPU. It needs to be faster than a gforce 7900. It needs to be able to play GTA IV

It needs to be able to play GTA IV

At what resolution? I can tell you this from experience; trying to push any modern games (ie, from the last ~3 or so years) at anything larger than 1280x1024 with a Geforce 8600GTS isn't a very pleasant experience. So, you'll want something better than that. Actually, come to think of it, the 8600GTS is probably about on par with, if not a little weaker than, the 7900.

7950? hehe.

The 7950's were a MAJOR upgrade to the 7900's. Hell we still have customers looking for those cards...

OneSlow, I have a few quadro cards more powerful than the 7900's. Let me see what I have lying around...
