Oh wow, 1.5k for a video card.

So why do I see a video card for 1500 dollars that is only 256 mb

and a 512 mb video card thats only $90?

What makes a video card good? What other things should I be looking out for?


I'm buying a video card for rendering videos in Adobe Premiere Pro 2, not for gaming.

I need to be able to use the video card in two separate monitors.

one of those is for rendering, doesnt use the catalyst drivers like the other card

the first card is for general use and gamers

the 2nd card is hard core graphics kinda work... like Auto CAD and such... maya, and all them things

I see. I already have a 128mb Radeon 9200 card. Is that Geforce 7300 better?

And also wat is wrong with this card? Peope seem to have bad reviews about it.

What is the difference between DUAL DVI and A dvi and d-sub port? Any advantages and disadvantages for each one?

I mainly need it for Dual Monitors. However I also need a video card upgrade. I'm using the old Radeon 9200 128 mb.

I'm also mainly using the upgrade for rendering video files in adobe premiere pro 2.

Newegg's listing for AGP cards that have dual DVI

I would say the 6600 GT, or X1600 pro are the best value.
