Advice for a new card.

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone , nice christmas brought me alot of money , and i decided to upgrade the last old thing on my pc : Graphic card !


So here we go : I have SLI gtx 285 and a 260 for physx.

I wanna try 2d surround and i was asking myself about alot of question.


So , i have 2 x 24 inch @ 1920x1080 and a 27" @ 1920x1080.


Which card setup i need / fits for my need ? i would like to stay under 800$ but if its goes around that , np.

I need also a brand recomendation because i always bought in the past from BFG . Ive never tried anything else before.


So what do i need ??


BUMP* New Question fo you Folks : I heard and i was reading that maybe i would have problem with the vram on the 570 to run 2d Surround on Triple Monitor @ 1920 x 1080, what do you think about this ?

Also , i heard that i need 3 identical monitor , which i do not have. I have 3 asus screen , all using 1920x1080 , but i have 2 x 24" VW246H and 1 x 27" VE276Q. Whats up with that ? hehe

Thx for additional Info

GTX570 SLI should serve your needs well, and you can use that 260 for Physx.

As for brands, I always buy from ASUS/EVGA.

EVGA is the best Nvidia IMHO

I'd get sli GTX 570's if I were you

EVGA is what killed BFG

any GTX 470+ really should work you need sli for surround to work but Narabhut why would he use a GTX260 for physx whens hes going to have 2 285s unless he plans to sell them as a pair

Sorry for double post , but im planning to sell only one card on the 3 i own, depending on if you guys tell me that a gtx 285 as a physx card would be overkill !

Isn't a 285 for Physx ultra overkill?

i use two 5850's in eyefinity and i usually do pretty good i usually got GTA IV almost maxed out with 4x AA in 5040x1050

unless you plan to max out the AA then 2 580s might not even cut it
