Solved Quick question about video cards Tags: Graphics Cards Motherboards Graphics Last response: September 4, 2009 11:57 AM in Graphics & Displays Share comput3r September 3, 2009 5:51:45 PM So uhm, I'm building a new pc, getting a gtx 260 with the 750i motherboard, and maybe planning to upgrade to ATI cards later, not sure. Just wanna know that if I only run one GPU on the board, it doesn't matter if it's SLI or Crossfire certified, right?

However, if you have no intention on going SLI, then get an Intel chipset motherboard. Overall, they are better. | Report abuse acer0169 Graphics card Expert September 4, 2009 9:04:32 AM @orangegator..

While I prefer nVidia GPU's, currently the ATI GPU's give more performance for the dollar. What you spend on an Intel chipset, you will save on the graphics cards. | Report abuse orangegator Graphics card Expert September 4, 2009 11:57:35 AM acer0169 said:@orangegator..

Check newegg's prices on p45 boards vs 750i or other nvidia boards. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Quick question about video cards> Related ressources: ForumQuick question about Integrated Video Cards ForumQuick question about my graphics card !
