Asus is always a cost effective choice for a gamer slab..
Gothrog's got you steered right although I've had good
luck in the old days with an nVidia or some GeForce spinoff...
Some guys are brand loyal, but the Korean and Chinese card
manufacturers are ironing out their GDDR5 problems quickly.
or even native
. If you're using GDDR5 in the first
place and have the right output holes in your motherboard;
look into how your intended apps handle onboard chips.
It's always going to be cheaper and it's one less set of glue
chips for the vid signal to squeeze through, however fast
the card design.
I've pulled a bargain basement genuine nVidia with only
a Gog and a half of DGGR3: but it'll run rings around my
last one with only a half of generation 2. My main deal
is AutoCAD-- and the rendering's assisted with Autodesk
specific drivers, but polygon rendering is the same whether
you're rotating a supercharger or blowing a tank.
If your machine is fast enough to eat the game frame I
usually make my rule of thumb at least a quarter of the RAM
the graphics chip population... some people go even half.
