I recently put together my new pc and i have all the components except a video card(right now its running the built in). Really i am looking for a setup that would give me the best bang for my buck(Whether it is a monster single card or dual crossfire setup).
Here's my rig
AMD Phenom X6 1050t ASUS M4A89GTD PRO (Its a CrossFire Board) 4gb(2gbx2) DDR3 1600 G-Skill Ram 620w Antec Neo Eco 620C Rosewill Challenger Case(Front,Top,Back Fans)
Looking to purchase soon(This week or next week)
Price desired - Around $200
What i want to do with it -Play games(Crysis at Very High) -I use ubuntu linux so it must be compatible with linux
I use newegg most of the time for my purchases(I live in the US)
Ive been looking really closely at the Nvidia GTX 460's and i like the performance they seem to show in most benchmarks
I think i got everything on here just let me know if you need more info
More aboutadvice video card
Yeah, the GTX460s is probably your best choice. No SLI without a hack however, so you lose one of the GTX460s strongest assets.
You can actually consider a HD5830.
The GTX 460 is indeed what you want for $200, especially if linux compatibility is important.
