PostSubject: Which Graphic card to buy   Tue Sep 03, 2013 4:02 pm

I'm not 100% sure it is my graphic-card there is making issues on my other PC, but I guess from my problems that is it.

If I should pick a cheap graphic-card just a bit better than the old one I had, what can you recommend?

PC details:
MB1366 Gigabyte GA-XA58A-UD3R
Intel Core i7-950 4x3,06GHz LGA1366 4,8G
3 x DDR-1333 Kingston 2GB
HDS 1000GB Seagate SATAII 7200rpm HDD
Nvidia GF GTX 470 1280MB DDR5
Windows 7

I was thinking to get one below 150 euros. It might be possible for me within a month.


I have downloaded gw2 to my old old pc and I have been online the past days just for chatting as I can't play, but sometimes it's impossible to log in, I just keep crash and get failrapports, so I don't know how much I will be online until my other pc is fixed. I think it's my Windwos Vista that is making the issues as I have to keep restart the entire pc to run the game.

I contacted the place from where the PC was bought and they told me to buy a GTX760 graphiccard. It's just a bit too expensive I think, but maybe that's what I should wait for?

GTX760 is a great GPU, and its currently at a great price/value point.
How much they are charging you for it?

A month ago they told me about 200 euro for that card. I haven't checked if the price is lower now.

does the 760 consume much more power than the 470? that is something to consider that your current power supply unit can handle.

I took time to look on nVidia website. The info isn't presented the same for both cards, but given their wording, so, yeah I think that's enough Smile

Ok thanks Smile

Anyway I will buy that card in the start of next month, plus I'm going to hold my last 2 weeks of vacation from the 7th October to the 20th October. Gonna give me some time to get back into the game Wink

I might be able to buy the new graphic card Tuesday or Wednesday. I have looked at this one here:
MSI GeForce GTX 660 grafikkort
Price: 188 euro
Does that look like a okay card and you think it will fit with my pc?

Also, I have looked at this:
Toshiba Q-serie 128 GB Solid State Drive (SSD)
Price: 120 euro
Would that improve anything, or is it something else people are talking about when they talk about a stick they use in the computer for better performance, speed etc.?

SSD-drives are faster then HDD-drives.
Raptor HDD-drives are also faster then HDD-drives
SSD-drives are faster then Raptor HDD-drives.

You notice it mostly if you put your windows on the SSD together with the other 'necessary' programs.

The GeForce GTX 660 is a good choice but Msi is a bad one I recommend u to buy if is possible a Gigabyte or an Asus, and for SSD i say the best ratio C/P is Intel (120 to 240 Gb).
I wish u best luck with this Balli
P.S. u need to see what power supply u have and if's to small (400,450,500 W is to small) u need to upgrade

Satei is right, i friend of me is playing with the GTX 600, thats under 200€ and works good. i play at home with a Radeon 7950 without any problems, but at my old computer with a 5670 (80€) and you can also play good Smile

The power ain't no problem balli, you had 750 or 850 (don't recall) That's plenty of power Wink
Only workstations require more power then that.

"Yes, SSDs have a limited amount of time they can be written to. But if you're buying a SSD in 2012 that's not something you should worry about. Your SSD will most likely die for other reasons long before you run out of Write cycles."


So please scratch that write rule from myour mind and make use of your SSD as you should for the money you spend on it Smile
