Hello All,
I've got a Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H MOBO build and I'd like to install a different graphics card. I do NO gamming but I do use photo and video editing software often. I really don't want to spend $200 on a card, I'd like to stay around $125. Can somebody give me some advice and guadiance here.

Thanks
Pat

The most powerful graphics card you are looking at in that price range is going to be an nVidia 650 TI or AMD 7770. The 650 TI is a bit more powerful, but also more expensive. The 7770 obviously is less expensive but might be a bit less powerful.

Part of your selection will depend on what software you are using and how much of the workload gets distributed to the GPU vs the CPU.

Here are some options.

That's when you're not sure about some older video cards (many are still very good).


WOW---that is a lot of data to digest, but thanks so much for the info.
