All I need now is a graphics card. I will not be doing any overclocking, crossfire, or SLI. I would like to be able to do dual monitor, so I am looking for a card with two DVI ports. The system will not be used for gaming, but it will be on most of the time so I don't need it too be extremely powerful, but I would like it to be a good one. I would like a quiet PC, so I am looking for a card that has a heatsink but not a fan, as I hear that those tend to generate some noise. I don't have any specific preference, I have heard that nVIDIA and ATI cards are very good. My budget for the card is $30-$70.

Thanks.

  1. I have been searching quite carefully for a dual DVI card and there don't seem to be too many. Of the few I found, I really don't know what I am looking for, so I'm not sure which is the best. Is it better to use a VGA to DVI adapter than get a card with two DVI slots?

    Low-power, somewhat strong, probably the best you'll get for the price.
  3. Thanks so much for the reply. I have two questions on this, if you don't mind. First, it says the memory type is DDR2. Does that have anything to do with my RAM? If so, will I have problems because I am using DDR3 RAM. And the other thing is that this comes with a fan. I had heard that video card fans tend to make a lot of noise, do you know if this is true?
  4. No, DDR2 will not affect you whatsoever.

    As for noise, I did a quick search on "Loud," and "Noise," and all I got was, "Not very loud, not very warm," so you should be just fine.
  5. Thanks.

  7. DDR2 on the graphics card will not conflict with DDR3 RAM. However, it will have only 1/2 the memory bandwidth of DDR3. No offense meant to the one who suggested this card, but I would avoid any 4670 with DDR2. A 4670 with DDR3 should be quite a bit faster and not use much more power or cost that much more. In fact most 4670s do have DDR3.
  8. That sort of weirded me out too, but then again, his budget is $70.
