Or, better yet, don't buy anything now, before the DX11 cards come out in a few weeks, and drop in prices in a month or so. have a peek at these guys deathvirus View Public Profile Find all posts by deathvirus (#5) BlackZero Ancient Guru Videocard: GB 290X WF3 Processor: 2600K H2O Mainboard: Asus P67 Pro Memory: G.Skill 2133 and see for yourself if it means something either way to you.

I have been using an Geforce7900/256MB with a Quadcore Q6600/2,4Ghz for quite some time, replacing it with a Geforce8800/512MB did improve the system a bit but not too much. check over here In all reality, the DDR5 is probably the better choice.

vBulletin v3.8.7, Copyright ©2000-2017, vBulletin Solutions, Inc. a 1GB card with a 256bit bus may be a little faster in professional programs due to the increased RAM, but gaming wise it will be the same as the 512MB HTPC - Linux Chat HTPC - Mac Chat Home Entertainment & Theater Builder Dedicated Theater Design & Construction General Home Theater & Media/Game

the 5570 is a lower end mainstream card. Agreed. If you want to upgrade, it's pointless to just get the same card with more memory as you aren't going to see a big increase at all. http://maxemoticone.com/graphics-card/best-graphics-card-for-vr.html Most recent games don't require more than 512 MB, or the Vram is fast enough to cope with the slight overheads.

Both are about average though, not actually bad ones, but... 9600 GT should do okay for those games, yes...

I'm limited to a 360w power supply, that's all that will probably fit in my case or that my motherboard is rated for, or so I'm told.

The specifications, on Dabs.com, say that it has 1GB of DDR3 memory. (what if you put this in a DDR2 system?) I know what HyperMemory means, and I'd expect it on

It's like saying your GPU has up to 3GB VRAM* *with systems that have 8GB RAM When in actual fact it has 256MB and steals a load from your RAM to I agree, go look at the Sapphire site and check out the cards description, misleadng at least although it may have a more accurate desription on the box you don't order Check the Nvidia control panel, I would expect that to be correct. A gpu needs to address memory at a much faster rate than a cpu to be as effective, hence the term 'bottleneck'.

Don't they all have 1GB of hypermemory and 512MB of dedicated? TechSpot is a registered trademark.

I've read that the larger size memory will help in higher resolutions like 1920x1080, but by how much? Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? In all reality, the DDR5 is probably the better choice. what cards are they?

Given they are the same price and using it at 1920x1080, which would be the better purchase is what I'm wondering. All Rights Reserved.
