Yet Another Video Card Question

Make sure this doesn't happen to you! I've read here that Skyrim eats a lot of VRAM and since I play it a lot, I'd probably need 4GB if I went with the 770 or 760.Anyone have any TRIALS FRONTIER Official Announcement and News General Discussion Support (iOS) Support (Android) Community The OTHG The Clubhouse Hot Lap Challenges The Gallery LIVE STREAMS Official Live Streams Community Live Streams GENERAL We have people on this sub with 760s and 770s playing vr games.

I want to start with being very budget minded. Oh, and as I had expected I am really liking PC sim racing. Lower-grade ATI or higher-grade nVidia ??? COMPUTER 1: Athlon X2 3800+ Socket 939 nvidia GeForce 6600GT 1 GB RAM 300 GB Seagate Hard Drive 300 GB Seagate Hard Drive ABIT KN8 SLi COMPUTER... [view my complete system

It had this feature that was really cool, though - a connector to bring the HDMI to the front of the case. So the idea of a passively cooled chipset is quite appealing to me. Always had very good performance from them. .....and I can't recommend the Antec Neopower 480 psu enough.

The new cards have some tech behind them that when implemented in games, gives far superior vr framerates, even without the tech it's still going to be a far better card. Currently have 4gb corsair dd3 1333 so will probably throw some more ram in to. Haven't done anything TOO intensive yet (and I only do SD). Bare minimum to play current games.I would probably go for the 280X, but I worried about not having a big enough PSU.

It looks pretty impressive to me, especially for 55. All Rights Reserved.

I know it is not top of the line, and trust me... From what I've seen on these forums we have a fair few quite knowledgeable gurus so I figured i'd ask some opinions.Nvidia GTX590 vs 2x GTX580 in SLI vs AMD 6990 You'll have to define your resolution, if you're building it for WoW or other games, and what your other hardware looks like for us to provide any decent recommendation.As to resolution Thanks Reply Reply With Quote 01-08-2005,12:05 PM #2 Guidon666 View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message Senior Member Join Date Mar 2003 Posts 978 Ok.

I do pretty good with 2gig cards but there's always an exception.

I've read a review on Tom's hardware which put it on a par with N-Force 4 motherboards, so fingers crossed! Again.. the i7 only beats out the i5 in stuff like photoshop if you do a lot of that stuff. It will still be overkill for WoW (and many other games) but you should have no trouble running any game released in the next 3-5 years.Yeah I'm certainly not aiming for

But then my original ASRock motherboard for this computer also did the job just as well really. Sign in here.

I know i will see some performance increase but my question lies on the video card. To this end, any links to other subreddits should be for the purpose of making information about virtual reality available to /r/vive. I read posts about laptops and AL 7.X....but havent found a config similar to this one... i wasnt ready yet...

I just want it to be a good experience and not sure if the 970 is just passable or if it'll be a solid enjoyable foray into VR. I even carry this philosophy over to downloading drivers now, because every time a new feature is added to my video drivers I have some sort of issue so I instead Reply Reply With Quote 01-08-2005,07:32 PM #8 Trogdor93 View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message Member Join Date Jan 2005 Posts 223 I don't think so.
