It all started with my stock Video card a Geforce overheating and finally dieing. I decided to go and pick up a new card at best buy, i picked up a Radeon HD4350. The card works ok but it is unbearable in the new medal of honor (even on the lowest settings). I get around 25 FPS when alone but in any fight it drops to 10, and if there is smoke it drops to 6-3. I thought at first it was because i didn't have the latest version of direct x, but after some time and updating windows and making sure the drivers were right, the problem is still there. My question is, is there something i can do to fix this, or should i buy a new card for my computer. After doing some research on some other cards i found this card EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR GeForce 9500 GT Video Card - 1GB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Support, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, VGA Support ( Link below). Any input will be welcome, and thank you.
Link to new card i'm thinking about replacing this card with.
Best bet for choosing GPU is benchmarks online, then you can price compare @ your leisure.
Then search for specific benchmarks on the web for your favorite games.
The HD4350 is several generations back, and is considered, dead center in midrange price
Op return that card and save up/order a 100 dollar card from newegg. A gts250 or ati hd 4850. If you can afford more, there are other options.
A 4670 would be much better than that 4830. Its a card with only 80stream processors, where the 4850 has 800.
Yes i had an 8800, but the video card overheated and died, so there is no using it. Although i bought the card in late dec 2008, you think there is any chance of a replacement? From what that benchmark site says the 4850 is better than the 8800, so instead of replacing it with another 8800 i'm going to go with the 4850.
I am new to the video card business, i usually just go with the best on the dell site when i order a new computer. But since the card is the only thing malfunctioning, i'm just going to use a new card (and my biggest mistake was trusting a best buy guy, and not doing this research ahead of time.), and carry it over if i buy/build a new computer.
What happened with my 8800 was the temperature was going up to like 80 degrees C, and then freezing my game that i was in and it would have green pixels mixed around. Then i got some advice from my friends to turn the fans up and it fixed it for a few months. However it finally started not sending signals to my computer so i figured it was time for a new card.
Let me know if i have any other options here .
Edit: i kept meaning to say the new Moh is a medal of honor game that was just released, it is just called medal of honor like the original and i said new so it would not be confused .
It uses 2 6 pin pci express power connectors. If you don't have any , it will come with molex to pci-e adapters. So you would need 4 molex connectors open.
Yes it will work with your m/b, and is not a very big card.
Your psu meets power requirements.
The connectors should work out. You might want to verify that by looking.
