HIS IceQ Radeon 6870 1GB or EVGA Gtx 550 Ti 2GB Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: July 22, 2012 6:26 AM in Graphics & Displays Share zeckor July 21, 2012 8:18:26 PM What Will give me the best performance? Overclocking? I don't plan on over clocking until when it starts to get less useful without it. Moniters? I run two moniters but I usually only use the secondary for text, or a video while I'm playing. (the second moniter is a old LG (1280 x 1024) and my primary is a new Asus (1920 vs 1080) Res/Specs Preference? I wish to run game on maximum (or close to) resolution and details. (Such as Metro 2033, LA Noire, Starcraft 2, ect, ect). Current Computer Specs? Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit Intel Core i5 2500k 8.00GB Ram ASUSTeK P8Z68-M PRO (Mobo) VE228 (1920x1080@60Hz) L1717S (1280x1024@60Hz) 977GB Seagate HD103SJ So what card will give me the best performance? Or is there no difference really between them? Thank you all in advance!
