Grapics card advice needed
 
I have a new Azus MOBO, Dual core, 64 bits, etc..... with built in craphics but I want to add a card that able to use it with two (2) monitors.

What would you recommend for a good card with 1Gb memory under $150.US?
I would also like to speed up my render process in E-5 :)

thanks

I'm using a 9800 GTX+ 1Gb Ram, works fine with Edius 5.x gpu effects, cheap and much faster than my Quadro FX 3400 ............

Note: I run it op XP 32 bit so i have no idea how well the 64 bit drivers are (should be fine)

Just make sure you can disable your onboard graphics first before you buy a new graphics card.

What about a Nvidia 8600GT 512Mb, how would this cope.

Anton, just noticed, do you have this graphic card,
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/nVidia-GeForce...1%7C240%3A1318

I was thinking of changing my GCard.

that is the right card but it shows the wrong images

the 8600GT has dual DVI out (as seen in description as well) but your images show 1 DVI and the card looks too short, mine is way longer

Thanks for looking at that Anton, I'll check that out.

Sorry to be a pain but I found this on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/512MB-9400GT-L...1%7C240%3A1318

Would this be suitable.

It hasnt two DVI out.
Just looked at my Gainward 6600GT, it only has the one DVI BTW
Thanks again.

Go for at least a 9800 series - that will give you enough horsepower for doing those transitions and Graphics Effects without having to render on timeline.

Better still, 512MB or 1GB Video RAM.

Go with the 9800 GTX+, Best Bang for the Money!
