PostSubject: graphics cards   Thu Dec 22, 2011 4:16 pm

I have a XFX nividia geforce 8800gt 512mb ram and it works good with cod 4 but at times when a game is action packed it cant keep up in black ops I have the pc to handle about anything you can stuff in it just had that card and everything I had game wise would still work so never upgraded.

Not too sure on this card. I did a quick look up online and my first concern was the onboard fan. It looks rather small compared to other cards and could cause overheating. Not sure what you have for cooling in your rig, but this is something you may want to look at. I'll do a little research for ya over the holidays.

Also, most newer cards have there own power cable, (not sure if this one does) so you need to check out whether you have a spare available, and whether your power supply can handle the extra load.

2G's of memory is a great thing, but sometimes may not be enough to compensate for the rest of the card.

Other things to consider are: am I going to upgrade soon, am I going to run SLI, do I want to play COD on a huge TV, etc...Also make sure your system can handle PCI express 2. Sometime you get what you pay for, and with video cards topping out at over a whopping grand, it really makes you wonder. There are sites online that can help you determine what card is best for your application. Sometimes waiting and dumping a few more $$ on it can mean all the difference in the world.

Just my 2 cents

something else you will want to ask is - how many streaming processor cores? what is the core clock speed?

you can read some feed back from Newegg customers on their 1gig memory 520 card here
