Would GeForce 9600 GT do the job? I have 19" screen 1400x900 i think it is. Regards More about : tomshardware ridic23 November 5, 2009 3:31:10 PM That would do....u may want go for a 9800gtx or HD 4650 or GTX 260....ur config look too good for a 9600gt....if u r a gamer then go for a higher one.... Rustyy117 a c 125 U Graphics card November 5, 2009 3:46:05 PM IMO You'd be better off buying a ATi 5770/5750 as they have DX11 support. Or if your planning on upgrading that monitor in the future, then grab a 5850/5870. Or wait on Nvidia to release their G300 Series cards, theres no point in investing in old generation video cards. Hope that helps.

Robinffs November 5, 2009 4:30:35 PM Maybe get a 9800gt instead? My budget is kind of limited! shadow187 a c 130 U Graphics card November 5, 2009 4:40:56 PM your motherboard is quite fine, Robinffs. If your budget is around $100, I advise you to get an HD4850. It offers solid performance, at quite a decent price. However, if you can kick yourself up to $125, newegg has HD4870's for that price, which is quite a great deal. Robinffs November 5, 2009 5:03:54 PM Thanks for the help Can't find your answer ? Ask !
