    32 bit vs 64 bit: How it relates to video cards

    So does that mean a 64-bit system with say 4GB ram running DX10 will have all 4GB of system RAM available since the above highlighted points wont be applicable on it ?

    I bought a 550ti today after my GTX275 died...*sigh*. Would have gone a bit higher had my wallet allowed. anyway. I put in the card in my rig, fired it up and ran GPU-z to get a feel of its vital states. and it is showing some strange readings. on the right is an image i picked off the web with...

    Phenom II X6 1055T now available !!! (not 1090T yet though)

    The fact that one can reach 4Gs on air with these processors is just amazing. and their price. too good. makes me a fan of the AMD 6 cores. wouldn't mind getting one.

    I want to buy a computer screen

    ^^ I Agree. Get a decent motherboard + CPU for starters. with the budget of 280$ you should be able to get a decent AMD setup ( Phenom II 550BE + 785 chipset based mobo = 200$ roughly). you will still be left with some spare cash. sell your current rig and get a mid range graphic card. bingo...
