I need a good Graphic card to go with Intel Q9550 Quad core processor. System specs are as below,
8GB DDR3 1333MHZ RAM, Gigabyte S2PT motherboard, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit OS.
I am looking at GTX 660 or GTX 560 Ti 2GB or GTX 650 or GTX 650 Ti. Tell me which will be the better fit, in the way, Q9550 doesn't bottleneck the GPU. I don't want to get a high performance graphic card, when it cannot be properly utilized by my CPU.
GTX 650 Ti boost gives more fps than HD 6950, but 6950 is cheap at my place.
I found a 2gig 6950 is about optimal before performance starts to take a hit............. you will find games that will be more cpu bound than gpu bound with this set up. (so a *2gig* 6950 or 7850 ) the 660 will be severely cpu bound. ( overkill ).,.... 560's suck.
last retired machine was a q9550/8gig ddr2-800/I ran multiple cards on that set up at 1920x1200.
