Hey gang, I need your help/advice.
Looks like I might be looking at some extra cash and was thinking about (finally) getting me a proper GFX card again.
I'm currently running an ancient nVidia 7300 LE wuheeeee...... (not)
But it's a focking jungle out there.... and I'm sure some of you got your fingers on the hardware pulse.
So, what do I need?
Monitor support: 3. (DVI/VGA)
RAM: Enough to do some proper gaming. So at least 2GB.
Brand: I don't give rats ass..... As long as it works.
OS: Vista/Win7- primarily Vista (64)
Comparison: I had (and smoked) a 2GB HD 4850 X2 last year. Best card I've ever had, so that's the 'bar' performance vise.
I've been looking at a 2GB Asus EAH 6970 with 6 monitor support....
Mighty sweet card.
Price: $500 (local price)
I'm sure it's available much cheaper elsewhere, but anything electronic/fun over here costs a small furtune....
Anyway. Any other suggestions?
