Default help me pick a new graphics card

The dell techie says i should look for a Video card, with a Rendering Pipelines of 8 Memory Interface - 256 bit, Pixel Fillrate (Gpixels/sec) between 2.6 - 3.3 Memory Clock (MHz) between 580 - 700 .

here are my system specs

my price range is $200-$300

Here is a link to the 8 pipeline eVGA cards:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...y=1402&Ntk=all

They great cards and have a lifetime warranty and 24/7 tech support.

Also, BFG and XFX are good brands.


In my opinion, you would be best advised to stick with nVidia since their drivers are better.
