Graphics Cards
« on: July 28, 2010, 01:45:31 PM »
Can anyone suggest a good graphics card for an MMOFPS like Warrock. I have played the game for 2.5 years and never had a problem up until their most recent patch.  I just need something with more juice, otherwise I will be forced to quit playing warrock. =/  Also, I cannot remember what I have at the moment, but whenever I get home from work I will have to check it out and edit this post.  Thanks for your help, peeps!

I'm going to assume that your PC is new enough to use PCI Express video cards.  If you're not sure, let me know, otherwise you might have a small problem fitting these items into your system. :o

I wound up getting an XFX card with a ATI RADEON 5830 recently: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150497.  It's handled everything that I've thrown at it without an issue.  It runs at right around $220.

If you're looking for something that's a bit cheaper, the NVIDIA GeForce GTS250 offers very solid performance for about $120: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150479.  It's slightly faster version of my previous card, which offers very good performance for newer titles.  It still doesn't hold a candle to the one that I listed above, but it's still an awesome deal at a little over half of the price.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
