Because i also playes pc games, i'd like to buy one of the geforce serious.
My budget is not sky high, but those 2 i found quite good:
1. 9800gt with 1g DDD3. (but a bit old)
2. 9800gtx+ with 512MB DDR3 (faster card, but less memory)
What should i choose? more speed or more memory?
Now i have 7600GS with 512MB DDR2, and when i edie HDV and applying effects, it's get chunkie. i don't know if it's because the slow memory (and slow card, generally), or the less of memory.
If you are running on XP, you need to keep in mind that any memory included in a graphic card is mapped using memory addresses that are shared with the 4gb memory space--if you use a 1GB card, thats 1 GB less of the 4gb available to the processor.
