Question by Dude from Australia | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Tue, Nov 13 2012 2:49 AM CST

I have a question, What is the best GPU for my 1600x900 resolution monitor?

I will use it mostly for gaming and video editing in the future. And i want decent amount of FPS while playing BF3 on single player about 45-50fps is ok on me! :)

My Radeon HD 7850 can't run the latest Need for Speed: Most Wanted at 1080p on high graphics

Question by Daris from Indonesia | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Sun, Nov 11 2012 8:56 PM CST

I just bought NFS Most Wanted (from criterion, the new one) and I was amazed that my 7850 won't cut the game at high settings. I would get frame drops that could get my frames to go below 30 per second. So I'm forced to get the settings to medium and then it's playable but still, I got drops that put my fps to the mid 30s. Yes the game has got excellent graphics, but I thought my Graphics would run every game at 1920x1080 High settings?

My Question is, is this normal? I would probably wait until they release the 12.11 Catalyst driver for download, but I don't think it'll fix this significantly when there is a problem in my system.

My system:

  • FX-8120
  • M5A99X Evo
  • Corsair 4GBx2
  • HD 7850

Thank you.

I've just upgraded my rig and want to get a new GPU, what card should I get?

Question by Scott from United States | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Wed, Nov 7 2012 9:46 PM CST

So I just upgraded from a E8400 and 4 gigs of DDR2 ram to a i5-3570k and 16 gigs of DDR3-1600 ram and a new ASUS VS Series VS247H-P. I'm keeping the SSD and 550W power supply that I have in my case, but I'm thinking that I will need to upgrade my video card to maximize my rig's gaming potential. I'm a medical student on a poor-man's budget, so would it be worth upgrading from a EVGA GeForce GTX 460 Fermi? If so, what should I get?

What GPUs should I buy for a 5760x1080 @ 120Hz setup for Sim racing?

Question by James from United Kingdom (Great Britain) | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Wed, Oct 31 2012 1:43 AM CDT

I'd like to be able to run 3 monitors at 5760x1080 and 120Hz for sim racing, but I can't work out what combination of gfx cards I will need to power this. As well as whether I will need any further adapters and If so what. Can you suggest a setup? I have no major brand preference and it would be on an I7 3820 and Asus P9X79 machine, although that can be changed if required.
