hello people,my old graphic card ( 7600 gt ) got fried today due to dust & fan lock..so i have to get a new card for my work(that is video editing & 3d animation;basic particles & 3d modelling )
my specs are
intel dual core e5200 2.5gHz
820gb Sata hdd.
and i have 19'' NEC multisync LCD ( 1280*1024)
so i have researched a lot today for 1gb ddr3 cards and finally came with these cards that fits my needs & budget(~$107),my currency is rupees so $1=84Rs. lol
so the cards are
ati radeon 4670
so anyone suggest me what should i get ?
my main programs are adobe after effects.premiere,3ds max,maya,photoshop.i must be getting quadro fx but for the time being i don't have money,ill upgrade it someday.
the market's server is down at the moment i will check it by tomorrow whether 4770 is available or not,plus i am afraid of buying ati's card because i was reading an old article the guy had maya 2008 with 4670 and it lagged a lot.my gt 7600 had some issues while rendering.if something is running in the background for example one window is of premiere & the next one if firefox..i could see the progress bar and some patches of that render.i am not sure whether it got malfunctioned or not
it boots the pc normally but when the windows xp logo come..some blue lines appear on Xp's text while the loading progress continues for seconds and then the display switches of and computer gets held.my friend says that my card's done or it is the problem with my pc.x slot.but when i removed that card.my pc is back to its life..currently running on-board intel gma 3100
9800gt 512mb wit 256 bus is better than 1gb ddr3 128/256 bits 9600gt ?
