Can someone please recommend some video cards for me? I’m going to build an Intel PC after the April price cuts and maybe try to over-clock it for additional performance. I have never played a game on my PC (other than Freecell). I use my PC as follows:
Using/surfing the web – 50%
Word/excel/outlook – 20%
Photoshop – 15%
Movies/videos – 15%
Not seeing why you would OC a system for web surfing, word and excel. It seems to me that while you never had played games you possibly may want to someday? :wink:
If you are running Vista aeroglass, you want a little 3d power at least. Something like a passive 7600GS would fill this need, be silent and consume very little power. Building in April, you are just a little ahead of a whole new crop of cards.
Thanks for the reply! I like the idea of silent (instead of a loud fan noise). Also, I intend to run Vista Ultimate. Can you tell me a bit about the new cards coming out? Are they worth waiting for (I'm not in a hurry). Thanks.
