    I have a Geforce 9600gt and using 188.07 drivers. I think its time to update. Whats the best 200 series?

    Need to upgrade gfx card. Maybe gtx 480 or maybe 5 series. I did like the performance of the ati 5830 but i rather stay nvidia. Any thoughts?

    but mean time 266.58 is good for my 9600gt?

    would a 570 be bottlenecked alot by my stock e8400?

    yes 266.58 contains the latest bug fixed for ur 9600 gt. how does 560 TI sounds? since its cheaper and when u overclock it u get faster performance than 570 and also u can Sli 560 ti later on. as far as bottlenecking yeah 3 gzh and dual core is pretty much on the low end side but it will do. u will see a big performance from 9600 gt to 570.

    if youre upgrading in 3 months, i would suggest getting the newer p67s and sandy bridge. theyre much faster than most 1366 cpus at stock clocks, and when you overclock the i7 2600k to 4.5ghz, it matches the i7 980x in most cpu benchmarks, and outperforms it in some.
