Thank you for your input. Sounds like the 645 should be able to keep her happy enough for what she will be doing with it.

Thanks. I couldn't find too much out about these because they're OEM like you said. I tend to like NVidia myself, and I'm familiar with their control panel. As long as the 645 can handle the...

Radeon HD 7570 or GeForce GTX 645?

Quick question here. I'm helping my girlfriend's sister buy a new PC. She's looking at the Dell XPS 8700. If she buys it on Dell's website, she can get the GeForce GTX 645 installed. If she buys it...

Thanks, I had a feeling the 7950 was too old at this point to be useful. So then the 620 is at least going to perform better than the integrated HD4000 on the cheaper PC then?

Yup, I agree. It doesn't sound plausible. As weird as the coincidence is, I think that's what it was. By the way, will her PC still have the dump info I would need if I wanted to run the SF...

The power supply for the monitor is independent from the PC - it's just a basic monitor with a standard power cable. The connection to the PC is VGA.
