    Default Graphics card debate...

    Well, as of the moment I've got an HIS IceQ Turbo 6950HD 2GB card with a 256-Bit memory interface.

    I'm thinking about getting two GTX-280's. Reason being, is that I bought one for a rig that I was building for someone and I really loved the card, the performance was incredible. The GTX-280 has got 1GB, with a 512-Bit interface which is twice the speed of the card I've got now. The GTX-280 RAM is only DDR3, and the 6950 is DDR5. However the GTX-280 ram is clocked twice as high. The only thing is that the core clockspeed on the GTX is 200mhz lower than the 6950.

    I'm just having a really hard time deciding what to do... What are your guy's thoughts?

    I thought this thread was about something completely different. Carry on.

    I've never even heard of a 280.

    I think it'd be better to keep the 6950 though; it may perform slightly under two 280s, but it's probably a lot smoother too. SLI typically doesn't have as many problems as Crossfire, but there are still issues. The 280 also doesn't have DirectX11 support if I'm not mistaken.

    But really, I guess it depends on what you're doing. Do you need better performance?
    Well, I'm mainly going to be doing photoshop, 3d design, gaming, and some cadwork.

    I wasn't thinking about doing SLI because I can only have two monitors total with SLI, I'm going to be running four so I'll just run them independently.

    And I totally spaced the DirectX support. Although the 280 supports PhysX, which is something that I'm starting to like in games.

    Thanks for the comments, I really appreciate it.
