I sill can't decide on a video card. I've asked a few times, and thought I was clear on what I was going to get, then I started to doubt my decision again.
Anyways, I would like to get a new video card for my computer. I don't want to go over $200, but would like to go less if possible. I want the card to last for 2 years. I don't plan on playing a lot of games. The only one of concern is Star Trek Online. I would like to play it with MAX settings and not get any "graphics lag" when I play as I get on my current card.
I don't care of it's nvidia or ati. I just want it to last. I will not overclock it. Just want a simple card, that will last for a couple of years until I am ready to buy a new system.
Please list make & model as I don't know much about brand names on video cards.
You really don't need to spend $200 for GPU to game at 1440x900, you can spend much less, but it is your money right up until you spend it. I would go with a 4870 1GB mem or a 4890 only because you will buy a larger (and higher resolution monitor) at some point - and I guarantee you will never voluntarily go back to 1440x900.
