    Couldn't find another other thread for graphics cards, so made this.

    Currently using a GTX480 4GB, but planning on upgrading soon, to something in the ranks of a GTX680 (still considering 2GB or 4GB).

    What graphics cards do you have, and what would you recommend?

    got a MSI N460GTX Hawk 1GB. Pretty solid. But still on dualcore and ddr2 so i'm sure my cpu is a bottleneck all the time.

    That's my biggest advice, when buying a new gfx, make sure you have a solid CPU memory to back it up. otherwise there is no use in buying a new GFX :smile: Many tools out there to check it for you.

    GeForce wins in this thread...

    Radeon HD 6900 w/ 1Gb Vram

    Set the video output to the graphic card, if you see anything it's alive.

    Got a EVGA Nvidia GeForce 480 GTX Superclocked and OC'd a bit more by hand. Works still perfectly fine and hardly every gets maxed out. Nvidia all the way brother.

    God damnit, Amazon got the ASUS GTX680 TOP for $540, while the cheapest in Denmark is $670, but Amazon can't deliver it to Denmark (most likely because of the tolls..)

    My CPU is a quite solid i7-930 (at 2.8GHz) with 12 GB RAM, so that should be able to keep up :tounge:

    I have considered adding another monitor, to easily find non mumblers in other squads while playing, or generally just browsing the forums and web, while Akbia is building FOBs and complaining that I'm not helping, so 2GB should be enough for that

    At the moment I have an Gigabyte 5850 with an Phenom II 955. But I'm going to upgrade to the asus gtx 670 and 3570k and a new mainboard, because mine is not supporting PCIe 3.0 .

    Make sure to check if your mobo can overclock your cpu. Mine couldn't, I learned that the hard way :frown:

    PCIe 2.0 won't bottleneck a GTX670, your CPU however..

    EVGA GTX680 Superclocked, if you guys find any bad things regarding this card, please say so, as I found it quite cheap compared to most 680 cards. It got 100 MHz less speed than the ASUS GTX680 TOP, but more memory etc.

    Even if they shipped it from US you'd still be better of buying it in Denmark.
