Help choosing new gfx card. I'm confuzzled! Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: December 21, 2007 5:55 PM in Graphics & Displays Share chriscboy December 21, 2007 5:51:42 PM Hey folks! I am in the process of buying parts for an upgrade and I'm really stuck on what to buy GFX wise I have about £150 to blow on the card itself. My current setup is as follows: DFI LanParty nf3 250gb AMD Athlon 64 3400+ Newcastle 2 x 512MB Corsair XMS Pro CMX512-3200C2 DDR SDRAM Gainward GS7800+ Golden Sample 512MB AGP 3.0 I have so far brought (memory coming soon): DUAL CORE INTEL PENTIUM D 945 CPU SOCKET 775 3.4Ghz DFI Lanparty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G (Chipset is ATI CrossFire Xpress 3200 for Intel / ATI SB600) So what for the graphics? I have always been an nVidia man, but with this mobo there is a possibility of using ATI Crossfire which sounds exciting. I have read and tried to understand the pros/cons of using Crossfire compared with a single GFX and have come out totally confused!! What should i do go the nVidia 8800 route, ATI HD3870, or a couple of slower ATIs in Crossfire? I am looking to play the following games: Crysis Bioshock Tabula Rasa World of Warcraft UT 2008 My monitor only goes up to 1400x900 so I wont be playing in any resolutions higher that this. Your ideas are greatfully received More about : choosing gfx card confuzzled cleeve December 21, 2007 5:55:47 PM No contest. For 155 pounds (inc VAT) you can get a Radeon 3870. That's by far the best way to spend that amount of money; two lesser cards won't be as fast as a single 3870. In fact, at the resolution you're playing at it's overkill for pretty much everything on your list except Crysis. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
