    Default Help with graphics card.

    So i got the money now and need to get a graphics card. I wanna spend around $200 but if one was significantly better I can go $250. I don't know much about graphics cards and manufacturers so I'd appreciate some advice.

    These are great. I run 2 but I run two monitors and some other stuff. One should be good enough...you'll have to save 100 more dollars though.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814202026
    Or this one is a pretty good one too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127722

    Yeah, but it's got issues with coil whine with what I've read for reviews. I personally hate it and find it distracting, however that's my personal opinion.



    If you've got an Intel rig, go with this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130938

    If you've got an AMD rig, go with this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161420

    If you're looking to play demanding games with high fps rates (crysis, battlefield, etc.) and do rendering, go with the GTX 670, it's got 4.728 more GHz of memory speed than the 7950.

    If you're looking to play games on reasonably high settings and acceptable fps rates, go with the 7950.

    However, nVidia cards work well with Intel, and Radeon/ATI cards work well with AMD.

    If you'd like more info, or more stuff to pick from just let me know and I'll be happy to help.

    You know, come to think of it that was the issue I had when I had that card. Now that you say that I remember that. Dont buy my second selection, it is junk.
    Go with insanes choice. Or save a little more and get the one I posted (first link).
    Damn, I am glad someone read the reviews on that card. I completely forgot why I replaced it.

    Hey, before you buy from newegg check around on pricing. Sometimes sites run sales, and you get more for your money.
    This site has quite a few selections on cards and other stuff....Sorry not trying to sound salesman like. But always shop around first.

    another good site. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...raphics%20card

    Actually, the 670 isn't good for rendering, because most rendering softwares haven't updated to take advantage of Kepler GPUs yet. As far as I know, no software officially supports Kepler, and only one or two things have work-arounds. If you want to do rendering, go with AMD or an older Nvidia card.

    No problem. For gaming solely, the 670 is a monster. I've got one and it tears through everything.
