Hello, can somebody please tell me which of these graphic cards is better: nvidia geforce 9600 gs 1Gb or nvidia® geforce® 9600 gt 512Mb??? I don`t need to play games but for graphic design stuff and programs like Adobe Package.
The PC is a:
Intel® Quad Core™ 2.60 GHz
4 GB DDR2 - 800 MHz

More about : nvidia geforce 9600 1gb nvidia geforce 9600 512mb

If your graphic design software is hardware-accelerated, then more memory and faster GPU is always better. Given that GT>GS, but 1GB>512MB, I think you would benefit more from more memory. Multiple files open tend to consume around 40 MB per file on the gfx card, and windows also wants its share.

Sorry, I dont know what hardware-accelerated means but the 9600GT 512Mb is a gift to me so I dont know which one to use...? Should I buy e better graphic card and if so what do you recomand to me (without spendig a lot of money) for this PC?

Oh, if you already have the 512MB 9600GT, then that's already pretty good. No need to buy a different one if you have a decent one already.
