I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what kind of Graphics Card I could get for my new Dell computer... I didn't realize when I got it (A week ago) but the graphics card pretty much sucks. The windows rating for my display and gaming are 1.0-- The lowest!
So, I figure I may as well get a new card now and get that all fixed. My range is $100-$200, but would much rather it not go over $150 if its possible to get a good one at that price. I don't play many games, but I do use photoshop intensely, play movies, have numerous programs running at the same time, and I use a 24-inch UltraHighDef screen.
My current specs are:
-Studio XPS 8100, Intel Core i7-860 processor(8MB Cache, 2.80GHz)
-6GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz-2X2GB/2x1GB -nVIDIA GeForce G310 512MB DDR3
-750GB Serial ATA 2 Hard Drive 7200 RPM
I asked Dell about putting a new graphics card and what kind would be compatible, but when I looked up the ones he said, I wasnt sure if I could buy them outside of Dell and get the same ones they were selling that he was telling me about. I looked them up on newegg. Here are the ones he said would be compatible at around the $150-$200 range.
$159 - ATI Radeon HD 2600xt 512mb
$205 - GeForce GTS 250 1GB DDR3
When I typed that into newegg I found that there were different kinds of manufacturers for those specs, so I wasn't sure if it mattered what I got.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
