Kotaku - A powerful graphics card is likely the most expensive component in your PC if you're a gamer, but with all current and past-gen GPUs available in the range of $100 to $500, it can be tough to pick the right solution for your needs.
i got the gtx 680 :D
you should have went for the 670 the cuda cores or only marginally downsized making a 5fps difference in most games
not too powerful by any mean but would be good enough to run most games at 1080p high setting. good enough I guess
I have a 6950 and its great eats through everything at 1920x1200
6950 is a high end card and will hold its own for couple more years!
ME 2 :D
ATI 5870 is still great imo.
My gtx 570 has been working fine for me. Haven't found something it can't handle yet.
If you can afford a decent monitor at those resolutions, your likely not going to cheap out on the GPU. Just always go for the best you can warrant, otherwise, 6 months down the road, you might find yourself a little disappointed that you didn't cough up that extra £50.
go for the Achieva Shimian 27" 2560x1440 ips panels its only about 300 quid with it imported the screens are rejected apple screens but for the most part are fine /watch?v=akJVKzzp4a4&featu re=relmfu
got an LG 24" 3D LED 1920 x 1200 £130 new from amazon. ya don't have to that rich for a decent monitor.
thorough study, very useful. thanks.
Maybe there will be one those in PS4
If you want it to be huge. These cards are half te size of a ps3. Well my 6970 is just as long.
@andibandit If anything it would be based off the HD7950 card. It does pretty much anything at 1080p, 60fps, Ultra Settings. Only a handful of games force it to run them 720p, 60fps, Ultra Settings which are both fine by today's TV standards. And most micro games (PSN / PSMobile) should be a safe 2K, 60fps. @h311rais3r Card size can be heavily tweaked, the reason they're so big is for cooling purposes inside of a computer which has a ton of other components that draw heat. For example the 7970M is a mobile GPU that's basically a HD7800 series card.
I'm not even touching a resolution like that. 1080p will do me just fine.
im looking at a new pc for myself for when i go back to uni, im getting either the 670 or 680 however the 680 is only 4.5% better than the 670 in pretty much all comparisings i've seen and the 670 can be overclocked to the same as the 680, so i think im going to go with the 670 and save myself that £100 for other features
Went from a INNO GTX 285 to a MSI GTX 670. Since I am playing games in 1920x1080 the card is future proff enough for me (3840x1080 since I got another screen for browsing/music/skype etc. while ingame).
5770 works perfect for everything so far and its what? 2 years old now? idk about you guys but just gaming at 720p saves you a lot of dough, and settings are maxed =)
ihave an AMD 6970 2gb is pretty much similar to the 7950 and is pretty col i think i don;t need to update just yet, i will probably wait till the 8000 series
waiting on the gtx 650
got a Gtx 580, kinda waiting haswell processor for a big upgrade on hardware and monitor side (want atleast 1440p)
