Audi2Honda is still being judged by the masses


Default iphone or new video card? I don't game a lot, but how cool is the iphone?

I mean really is it worth the money? I'm currently rocking an old school black berry 8703 and X1900XT.

I personally mostly use my phone to make calls - Does anyone still use their phone in this old-fashioned way? So for me, a new videocard would be the obvious choice since even the cheapest phones are good enough for making calls and sending the occasional text message.

Hehe, no, it's not ;P That's Crysis Does not run on the iPhone.

OnT: It all depends, what kind of games do you play, when you play?

Depends on how much of a phone geek you are. If you use for phone for asbolutely everything, then get a new phone. If however you just use it as a phone, and seldom anything else, get a video card.

Neither does my iPhone

Anyways, it's a matter of choice. Do you want a fun phone + a decent mp3 player + some touch games? Or do you want your regular phone with a new video card (4870?) for gaming?

What video card do you have now.

I still rock a 8800GTS 640 and see no reason to get a new video card. The games just aren't there like they used to be to justify upgrading a video every year like I used to.

Of course, I'd say go with the iPhone. It's way more useful to you than a video card. The iPhone you can take with you to make calls, check email, surf the web, watch a movie, play games, listen to music, update your calendar, update your contacts, check your investments, get a read on the weather and use numerous Apps to update your Facebook, Myspace or check your Ebay auctions.

The iphone will cost you much more both in money and in dignity.

If you text and email alot, do not get any touch screen phone.

However, if you want to surf the net on the move in the best way possible, do get a touch screen phone.

Or if you dont mind carrying something slightly bulky around, get a HTC TyTn II or the new Sony Xperia. Both have touch screens as well as a QWERTY keypad.
