Hi. I have the post Building A New Computer (NEED INPUT)
and nobody is helping me there any more. I'm in the stage of getting the final parts for my computer and would like some input before I get my new video card for it (see other listing for my build).
On my current (old computer) i'm running:
(CORE CLOCK) 550 MHz (MEMORY CLOCK) 800 MHz (128 bit)
My new computers video card possibilities are:
(CORE CLOCK) 800 MHz (MEMORY CLOCK) 4000 MHz - $179.99 (256 bit)
(CORE CLOCK) 900 MHz (MEMORY CLOCK) 4200 MHz - $249.99 (256 bit)
(CORE CLOCK) 940 MHz (MEMORY CLOCK) 4600 MHz - $279.99 (256 bit)
(CORE CLOCK) 850 MHz (MEMORY CLOCK) 4800 MHz - $304.99 (256 bit)
Would I really notice much of a difference between these 4?
I don't know much about video cards (these 4 are all PCI Express 2.0 1GB XFX Video Cards and can be looked at on tigerdirect.com)
I need DVI or VGA and only need support for one monitor. The computer is used for video games, internet/email, and school work (college). The only thing that really requires graphics are my games.
Note: I have $320 to spend after getting my cpu and motherboard, but will still need my keyboard for $130. If I get the keyboard that leaves me with $190 for the video card, which means I'd have to go with the top one. Now on the other posting I have, someone told me to go with the one that's $304.99. I don't have to get the keyboard, but I would like to get the whole thing done and over with, so it would be nice to be able to get the keyboard too. I don't wanna rush into buying one though without knowing if there's that much of a difference between the 4 cards.
