What Video Card would you recommend?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
CPU - 7.4 rating
RAM - 7.4 rating
Graphics card - 5.4 and 5.9.
HDD - 5.9.
I understand that the graphics card and HDD are a bottleneck for my system. What video card and SSD would you recommend under $250 for both. I was thinking of this graphics card.

Uh, the HD isn't really a bottleneck if its a 7200RPM one.
You are better off getting a 6870/6950/560Ti + maybe a better PSU (you don't specify).

Is there any reason why you need a SSD? I would pick up a 560ti or a 6950 for your price range and forget about the SSD.

MSI's 560ti Twin Frozr II.

Solid performance, extremely quiet, and extremely cool temperatures! Comparable to a GTX 470 but without the heat, noise, or heavy power consumption.

+1 Focus on the best GPU you can afford.

I'd get a 6850 or a 6870, I've been pretty pleased with mine

I actually haven't found a game that I can't max out and get 60fps yet

Edit: That 6770 would be alright, but your cpu can handle more than that, so itd be a little bottlenecked

Go 1920x1080 and it will be different.

He's using a 19" monitor, I rather doubt that it's 1080p

what are you trying to do? play games? video editing...or just pure trying to get 7.4 rating on windows 7?

if you are gaming..than put all ur money into the gpu

if you are video editing.. then put all your resources into the SSD/ram

if you want to get 7.4 across the board... then send me all your money and I will take a screen shot of 7.4 and send it to your email

JK... just let us know what you trying to do with this computer we can help you more.
