Hi! I want to buy a new Nvidia (Only) graphics card for my system. My specs are:
Intel Core 2 duo E4500 (2.2GHz),4GB Ram, 17" monitor, 450W PSU
My budget is max. 150$. I want to play the latest games at 1280x1024 with decent fps and detail and i cant really upgrade my monitor till next year...
Please advise me good nvidia card...Thanks
Which 450W PSU do you have, and are you willing to overclock your processor?
Well, i have Corsair VX450W Power Supply at the moment and i will upgrade it to 750w in a couple of months hopefully..
Btw, i not really sure about overclocking processor but if its necessary to any thing, then sure i will...
Thanks for reply, well friend i have an intel board and i dont do gaming exclusively.. I also i'm quite involved in video editing, processing, etc . So, the Nvidia CUDA technology will help me in this case.. Also, the nvidia cards are better all-rounders in my opinion.. Sorry if i offend u...!
Yes, you will need to overclock because most GPU's will be bottlenecked by your processor at only 2.2Ghz, you could get a GTX 460 or GTX 560, but I'd recommend a HD 6850/6870 as they have a much lower power consumption (The HD 6850 and HD 6870 use less power than a GTX 460) but it really depends if you really want to stick with Nvidia.
