BEST VIDEO CARD UNDER $100??

I thought that my build in mobo video card would work okay, but It really does not, it not good at all, I am looking to upgrade something to which I can do a little video editing, picture effects with CS4 a little auto cad designs and such, is there a card for under a $100 that would run things of that nature and allow me to play with medium settings some games? such as starcraft II, or left4dead? ..

  2. That card would do good with running what I want?
  3. should be good unless you have to use cuda.
    if you want cuda you'd want a 440 probably.

    to bad the 440 is to slow for video editing anyway LOL gimmick just like physx and 3D.
  5. So lets bring up the price to $170 What can I have that will do what I need, I'm a noob when it comes to GPU, and therefore I need to read up on CUDA I dont know what it is or what it does, but I would like to be able to work my programs and play some games...

    CUDA is an Nvidia Sales Gimmick prop if you want to properly/swiftly edit video you need a competent CPU that's what you need not GPU however if you want to play games there's where the GPU comes in. They do however make business class video cards for like developing CGI and drafting and such but those cost in the thousands and they play games like ***.
  7. For the minimal amount of picture / video edition that I will be doing I would imagine a GPU would do the job am I right ?
  8. The best card for $100 new or used is a GTX 280/285 second hand or a open boxed gtx 460. For buying new you won't be getting any thing particularly nice.

    Take a look at the carts and look at the values. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units
