I've been trying to find a thread that I saw that had recommendations for upgrading older video cards - the basic layout was Nvida and Radeon cards arranged according to capability and the recommendation was that you upgrade when there was a "gap" of three cards.

FYI - I'm temporarily "recycling" a 9600GT from an older computer in a new build. I had built one and my wife basically said "well, that's mine, build your own :lol: ." So we now have two newer computers. "My" build

ASUS P8Z68-PRO
i5-2500K
Corsair XMS3 - 16gb
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM
Plextor CD/DVD burner
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850 PSU
Silenex fans

At this point I'm debating a 6950 with 2gb vs lots of others

Yes, that is it! I searched for about 5 days before I asked but never used "Hierarchy" in the search. Thank you VERY MUCH! From the chart, it looks like it is REALLY time to upgrade.
