    Graphics card help

    Ok guys, so i will be getting a new graphics card, which one you'd recommend me? I would like one that loads pretty well games like TF2, Portal, [s6616165]Skyrim[/s6616165] some other games who needs a good graphics card to run, and also Minecraft, because on Minecraft, some of the good graphics card doesn't run Minecraft correctly.

    Do you think that an Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 would be good?

    Re: Graphics card help

    Next time I recommend posting this things in the Help/Suggestion Centre, but...
    If you wanna be able to play TF2 and Portal, you don't really need a really good computer as those games are not that RAM demanding. But in case you want to play some higher graphics games, like Skyrim or whatever, I'd recommend getting a 480, those are quite capable of playing most games at a high resolution and they are relatively inexpensive.

    First off, the GTX 560Ti is the graphics card I have and it's awesome for the price! Can play pretty much everything and the card is almost as good as the ones just above it for a DRAMATIC price drop.

    And second, you can post computer queries here. This is the Gaming And Computers section for a reason. I'm not really sure why most people post this kinda think in the Help/Suggestion Centre.

    Re: Graphics card help

    We need a little bit more information to help choose the right graphics card for you. The cards they recommended are great, however if you have an older processor then having an amazing graphics card will help, but you won't necessarily get the full potential of the card and would be wasting money. Also your power supply might not be able to handle higher end cards depending on what it is. So if you tell us the specs of your computer, what power supply you have, and the resolution you plan on playing on, then I'll be able to make a better recommendation for you. If those are the only 2 games you plan on playing, then you shouldn't spend the money on those cards.

    Something like this is a lot cheaper and would run those games perfectly.

    This is a great page listing all the graphics cards in tiers and might help you out a little bit.

    I have a Radeon 7870. Use about half as much power as the GTX cards and run just as well.

    I can verify this, I have the same card. I'd recommend it.

    What's the rest of your spec? It's not just about your GPU.

    Meh:

    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU 3.20GHz
    RAM: 3.00 GB
    Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS
    All my specs are pretty good, just need a new graphics card, the GeForce 8400GS is total crap.
