Sandra SISoftware is a free program you can download that will examine your whole system and tell you what you need to do. If you wanted to add a vid card it would tell you which one to get. if you wanted extra ram it will tell you which to get and how much, if you need security it will tell you and it does many other things as well.

Download it and have all your questions answered in one prog. What motherboard do I have? what Ram? what soundcard? ect ect.

Information sent to SKY about how to chose a card and which works best with which CPU.

Might help someone later.



Sky these four cards are going to be your best bet. Very simple to install and effective.

When choosing a card keep this in mind:

ATI Cards work well with AMD processors (CPU)

GE-FORCE Cards work better with Intel processors


Pay attn. to things i have boldend out. The can also help you choose...if you were to want to upgrade at a later time to SLI (link two cards together) >>>>>> In fact, just forget about that as far as making a choice since it really has nothing to do with what you want to accomplish. BUT.. if your motherboard supports the AMD or Nvidia SLI options, YOU WILL KNOW WHICH IS BEST FOR YOU RIGHT OFF THE BAT.


Look online for best deals (ebay, Pricewatch.com or newegg.com or even just put the name of the card your interested in the google search bar and find them that way.





Best PCIe Card For ~$100 : Tie

Good 1680x1050 performance in most games; 1920x1200 in most titles with some lowered detail
Radeon HD 4830


The new Radeon HD 4830 finally gives AMD something with which to compete against the legendary GeForce 8800 GT (as well as its identical sibling, the GeForce 9800 GT). Just as the GeForce 8800 GT is a crippled GeForce 8800 GTS 512, the Radeon HD 4830 is a crippled Radeon HD 4850. Both cards are excellent and which one wins over the other depends on the game or the image-quality settings.


GeForce 8800 GT / 9800 GT



The GeForce 9800 GT prices have dropped a little over the past few weeks, and Radeon HD 4830 prices have come up a tad, so the card rejoins the recommended list. Both are excellent options at the $100 price bracket, and which you choose should have more to do with whether or not your motherboard supports Nvidia's SLI or AMD's CrossFire for future expansion options.


Best PCIe Card For ~$130 : Tie

Good 1920x1200 performance in most games, some with lowered detail
GeForce 9800 GTX+ / GeForce GTS 250


Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Sure, as long as the framerates stay the same. Even though the GeForce GTX 250 is a re-badged GeForce 9800 GTX+, the falling prices have kept this slightly older but still powerful graphics technology very much in the game.


Radeon HD 4850


The Radeon HD 4850 hangs in there, competing with the GeForce 9800 GTX+ / GeForce GTS 250 twins at the same price point. Each card will claim some victories depending on how well it works with a particular graphics engine, but for the relatively low price of $130 neither will disappoint.


Best PCIe Card For ~$165 : None




Best PCI Express (PCIe) Card For ~$70: Radeon HD 4670

Best PCIe Card For ~$85: GeForce 9600 GT



My recommendation:

I LOVE AMD products. They are cheaper and work just as well as Intel's plus are made more for graphics and gaming than office use.............SO ATI CARDS will always get my vote.
