This is my first post and I have a quick question about a video card. I have a kinda low budget, and I was looking at this card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... What do you think ? More about : quick question video card Robert Pankiw a b U Graphics card March 5, 2013 9:25:27 PM There are better cards for the same price, such as the 7750/70. As one example of many: http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=72479 In the original review of the 640, it wasn't as good as the 7750. In the recent Crysis 3 review, the 7750 performed on par with the 650 (The 640 was not considered). If you insist on Nvidia, get the 650/650ti: http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=76612 Personally, I'd get the 7770 for ~$100, or go up to something like the 7850 / 660. Just my 2 cents. m 0 l jubbajabba07 March 5, 2013 9:27:32 PM Thanks, Robert. :-) m 0 l Related resources Quick question about Integrated Video Cards - Forum Quick question about video cards - Forum Have a quick question about upgrading graphic card? - Forum Quick Question: Video card with this PSU? - Forum Quick video card Brand question - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Same card on newegg if you prefer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As for the hard drive (not sure what exactly is cheap to you): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Thanks, that is about what I was thinking on the HDD. I might just buy it, and I'll probably purchase the 7770 in the next month or two. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
