Which graphics card are best for gaming?
I am deciding between the Nvidia Range and the Radeon range, are they different?
I always thought Intel and Nvidia were a good pair and AMD and Radeon. I been out of the game for a little while, but I have a GTX260 that was a great card, still is. But it's big and can suck a little bit of power. Whats your setup? and what games are you going to play?
Thanks, racing games such as Dirt 3. Any FPS games. How about the GT Cards, not GTX, are they any good?
I believe the GTX260 would do fine. I seen some on ebay for like $40
Can the GTX260 play all modern games on high res - 60fps or more? I have Core 2 Duo 3.12Ghz
Im not sure. With Dirt I would say it would do pretty well with it. But you also has a relatively older CPU also. If you had a Quad Core and a 260 you should be fine, also with some good RAM. Just do your homework, and research a little bit
Comes down to budget and your final goal, if your just looking for raw performance the GTX 2xx series from Nvidia are still very capable cards as is the aforementioned GTX 260, after this it starts to get into realism more than responsiveness. Newer Nvidia cards support DX11 and that adds a big enhancement in the form of tesselation this allows objects of round or natural shape to look far more real using an extremely high triangle count. As far as power goes any card in the double height catagory is going to need an on par power supply most requiring 450 or better but I would recommend keeping it at 650 or better specially if you overclock a little.
In My opinon the Geforce GT cards are meant more for budget gamers. Players who don't use the "High" or " Ultra" preset on the graphical settings. If you play at low resolutions like 1280x1024, it might work out for you. Another pro of the card would be if you have space issues in your computer case, and they draw less power. They may seem like a good thing now, but after a year or two you may have to upgrade sooner than you intended.
Again, my opinion is that "GTX" cards will give you a greater return on investment if Your Computer, Power Supply can handle it. I Know some people who choose Nvidia over AMD just because they have had less driver issues, or they like the Nvidia Control software better than AMD Catalys Control Center.

AMD or Nvidia? or Intel? Which one do you have/prefer?This is a question for the PC Gamers, Home Theater PC and general PC users. I like to ask on every forum and Social Network. I personally could go for either on a Desktop. Intel for the notebooks are fine .
