A couple of general ATI & NVIDIA questions

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
hey gang,

I own an Nvidia 7800 GTX at the moment and have been looking around at the high end cards such as the ATI X1950 Series and the Ndivia 7950 GX2 Series. Am I correct in saying that these are the best 2 graphics cards out there at the moment? Please correct me if i'm wrong. Anyway I was wondering if these two series of GPU's will work on my ASUS P5ND2 Sli Delxue motherboard? Am I restricted to an Nvidia model GPU, or will any brand of SLi card work??

With DX10 coming soon I was wondering if I should just wait for the next gen of cards to come out instead of bothering with the GPU's mentioned above - is my motherboard likely to support the DX10 graphics cards or will I have to look at new motherboards? Sorry for all the q's i'm a bit behind with the next gen hardware & software at the moment!

Thanks for any help

J

so will I need a new motherboard or will the P5ND2 Sli deluxe support it, and what about ATI cards? Would they work on my mobo?

I don't see why they wouldn't work on your motherboard, but i'm not 100% sure.. as long as it has a PCI-E slot, which it does, they should work.

yeah it has PCI-E. So i guess they would work. The mobo uses nForce which is by Nvidia so I just thought it may conflict somehow.
