I just built a new gaming rig and i have been going crazy over what gpu to put in it. I cant decide whether to go with a ati or nvidia card; crossfire or not, there are a couple of cards that i am looking at. gtx 260oc, gtx 275, hd4890, 2 hd4770 crossfire. price range from $110 to $245. I play a couple of games fsx, hawx, moh, crysis. Can anyone help me decide? do i need crossfire or do these games play better on singel gpu.
amd 720be @3.6
foxconn am3 motherboard 790gx with crossfire support not sli
2 wd black 640gig raid 0
g skill 8 gig ddr3 @ 1066
WHAT is your PSU? (Exact specs, please).
WHAT is your monitor resolution?
WHAT is your budget?
WHAT are your gaming uses? Do you game a lot? If so look at a faster card, if not then something cheaper will do the job and save some hard earned cash.
WHAT is the maximum airspeed velocity of an unladen Swallow?
I also would rather a faster single gpu.
so i am thinking of the gtx275 or 285 but the 4890 has such a great price point right now $199
I am mostly going to be playing fsx the most, and ive heard that nvidia cards are better for fsx!
