I am currently in the process of building a new computer. At the moment I am looking to buy the parts listed below. The problem is it has been so long since i built my last computer and I have not kept up with graphics cards. So I am not sure what the best is anymore.
Last time i built a computer ATI was in the lead. Now it seems they are about even with Nvidia edging ahead a little. I have just started researching cards and wanted to post on here and see what others have to say. I dont really have a budget I would like to stay around $400 but I am trying to build the best system possible for right now so feel free to recommend cards that might be above that. Thanks for any help you can provide.
That looks like a great build, but the you should get a power supply, the Smillidon case is an amazing case, but the power supply not so much. My good friend actually owns that same case, but he bought a nice 750w PSU to keep his 10x HDD's powered. With your current setup I'd go with a 8800GT, since you have a SLI motherboard.
The current absolute best right now is still the 8800 Ultra. There are 2 problems with that though. 1)The 8800GT gives you close performance at a fraction of the price and power requirements. 2) The new 8800GTS 512 is coming out and it's supposed to deliver 8800GTX like performance, again at a lower price and power requirements.
The new GTS is supposed to out this month (check me on this) so I would consider waiting just a bit longer to make your choice.
I have been looking at the GT and the GTS's the prices are relatively the same but i cant really tell what the different is. I know this is a noob question but like I mentioned it has been a while for me. What is the different between the GTS and the GT?
