PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: amazon.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Argentina
PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference. Whatever's best. I do lean on Nvidia, though.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1366x768
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I have a big issue with cooling. I try my best, but my current card is up to 60 degrees celsius even with the case i'm using. Proper cooling would be nice.
Was considering buying this card:
EVGA GeForce GTX560 Ti 448 Cores CLASSIFIED 1280 MB GDDR5, Dual-DualLink DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, SLI Graphics Cards 012-P3-2068-KR http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-CLASSIFIED-Dual-DualLink-Dis...
But that was about an year or so ago.
I also agree that you should aim for the GTX 660 or GTX 660 Ti for nVidia or the HD 7850 for AMD. At that resolution, you would just be wasting money by getting a better card. If you're going to eventually upgrade your monitor, then get one of those three.
If cooling is an issue, I would shy away from AMD since their cards use more power and run hotter.
