Which graphic card: ASUS EAH3870 TOP Or ASUS 9600GT


I am building a new system, but i don't know which graphic card i must choose.

This is my system so far:

Intel core 2 quad Q6600 2.4 ghz
Asus P5KC mobo
Samsun spinpoint 502IJ 500 GB
Take MS 4 GB DDR2 6400 800MHZ CL5

Is this a good system? and which graphic card fits well in this system?

ASUS EAH3870 TOP/G/HTDI/512M the EN9600GT/HTDI/512M or the EN9600GT/HTDI/1G ??

Already thanks!!!..

  1. I am actually building a similar system to yours, if not identitcal. However I am not choosing either of these cards. The best card for around £100 ($200) is the radeon 4850 at the moment. In my opinion you can't go wrong choosing this card.

    If your American

    If your English
  2. ^+1 4850 rocks for 199.99 USD. I would agree if those cards are substantially cheaper than the 4850, they would be a good buy.
  3. Yeah, if you can spare the ~$60 extra, definitely rock the 4850. The 4850 stomps those other cards at all resolutions in all games.
  4. I'm not sure that it makes a lot of difference at the moment. But the motherboard you have chosen has PCI express x16. You probably want PCI express 2.0 x16 if you want the most out of your card.
    However you might want to confirm this with someone else as I am unsure on the performance difference.
  5. Hail the 4850!!!
