Choosing a new VGA

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102831Hey guys.
Am a new guy here i got really impressed by the ammount of threads in here.
I am planning to upgrade my VGA card and i am getting soooo confused at the moment for taking a decision. I dont have any experiance with ATI cards.
my System:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450
ASUS Triton 79 Amazing CPU Fan
Asus P5ND Motherboard
8 Gb OCZ (800) Ram
Asus EN9600GT TOP
GIGABYTE chassis 3D Mars.

my CPU and VGA arent OC coz i know nothing about it ><

i was checking newegg and had my eyes on a nvidia 275 and a 4890 ATI
here are the links

  1. hi,


    what resoultion and games do you play, and well done those two cards are well matched.

    one extra thing, is that mobo SLI?
  2. GTX275, or two if you are flush with cash.
  3. Well i usually max out the Resolution of 1680*1050 wide and my screen is the SAMSUNG SyncMaster 2253bw 22''

    yeah its supposed to be SLI :)

    well mousemonkey tbh am not planning to spend any extra money to buy x2 VGA but in the near future i will get another one and run it in SLI

    i forgot to add my PSU is EPSILON 600 Watt SLI READY

    Yes his motherboard has SLI capablilties.
  5. If you plan to get another card later to run in SLI then there isn't much point in looking at ATI cards IMO.
  6. i agree with you coz my mobo doesnt support crossfire.

    is that MSI vga i linked is the best thing i can get with my money? or is there any better one with same or less price?
  7. I'm in the UK so therefore have no idea which are the cheapest shops in the US.
  8. am not in the US but i usually buy stuff from the US and have them forwarded to me.. so u can either use ebay or newegg or Amazon :D
  9. yeah your best of with the Nvida card than, as your mobo is SLI capable

    I m also based i the UK or I would say get it from OCuk
  10. no other recomondation other than that 275 MSI?
  11. XFX cards have a double lifetime warranty & EVGA offer a step up program, do some research and choose the one that suits.
  12. Nvidia Cards, Newegg.com Have fun.
  13. well guys after loads of searching i found out that the ZOTAC GTX 275 AMP is a better choice over the MSI i card i linked in my first post i think i will order the ZOTAC
