    GT240 help fan too noisy...

    I purchased a GT240 Galaxy Video card. I found a seller on ebay who had a Galaxy GT240 they used for 2 weeks but didn't really need it. I ended up getting the video card for $42.50 including shipping. I didn't really care the card was only a DDR3 version because I thought I was getting a good...

    GT240 help fan too noisy...

    I haven't received the card yet. I was just wondering if the fan on the Galaxy GT240 would be a little problem or not. I noticed not all but some of the reviews on Newegg mention that the fan was noisy on their Galaxy GT240 video card. I currently use a 8600GT. I don't what model it is but do...

    GT240 help fan too noisy...

    I purchased a Galaxy GT240 from ebay. I was wanting to know if the Galaxy version has a loud fan on it or not. I have read many reviews on Newegg. Many of the reviews say its loud. The Galaxy GT240 runs at 25% during idle but the fan still ends up being loud. Is there much difference between the...

    GT240 which card to get...

    I have noticed many good deals on video cards lately for the GT240. I notice you can get both an EVGA and Galaxy DDR5 versions of the GT240 for $45 which includes rebates. You can even get the Galaxy GT240 DDR3 version for $35 including rebates. You can get an EVGA GT240 for $30 including...

    Picking up a 5670

    I was looking at video cards. I was wondering how does the 5670 perform compared to the older 4670? It would seem the 4670 would be a better deal if you don't really care about Direct X11 supported games. Having a Direct X11 supported card right now isn't such a big deal. The 6000 series cards...

    XFX 5550 1GB DDR2 $40 after rebate and free shipping

    I saw that same special on Newegg. I don't know how good of a deal that is since it isn't a DDR3 version of the 5550. Since its only DDR2 I don't know if it would be that great of card. I would think it would be comparable to a 8600 GT or 9500 GT but not much better.

    Video card for HTPC and light gaming

    It depends on what games you are playing. Starcraft 2 which is coming out next week is being optimized for Nvidia cards so you can turn on AA, AF. I don't know what the difference would be with an ATI card though. With the current cards out there I would get a 5570 or 5670 if you want a card...

    Looking for a new Video Card

    Are they going to be releasing GTX 440 and 430? It seemed like they were going to be releasing the GTX 450, 440, and 430 around June but they ended up postponing the release of those cards to a later date. Is the 450 suppose to compete with the 5750 or 5770? Will be it be $150? I'm waiting till...

    Looking for a new Video Card

    I'm not looking for a 9800GTX but they have them currently as one of the weekly specials at Fry's Electronics. You can a 512MB PNY 9800GTX its regularly $100 but they are currently offering a $50 rebate so its like your getting the card for $50. That would be the easy way to go but a 9800GTX...

    Best Low Profile Graphics Card for 240W PSU?

    I would get a HD5670 but the 9600 GT would probably be much cheaper I think. I understand the HD5670 doesn't really need a 400 watt power supply like they say but would a 260 watt PSU be enough for the 5670? I don't even know what the power requirements are for the 9600 GT or 9800 GT. I have a...

    [FUD] Ati 6000 series minor improvement

    That's what I am waiting for. Im waiting to see when the cheaper Nvidia cards will be coming out and when the 6 series ATI cards come out. I'm waiting for the price to go down before I get a new card. I'm using a 8600GT right now and am interested in some of the current ATI cards but wish I...

    Video cards and DX10 / DX11

    I don't think I will be getting a Direct X11 capable Video Card soon. I should just wait 2-3 months until the 2nd generation of ATI cards come out and these current ones will be much cheaper. I think the 5670 is a good video card if you want something that can play many or most games or if you...

    Looking for a new Video Card

    The Power Supply is an APC 410 watt and 12 amps. I know those requirements AMD puts on the memory cards go a little overboard so if they say at 450 watt power supply is required to run the 5750 is probably incorrect. I could probably even run a 5770 on my 410 watt power supply but I don't think...

    Looking for a new Video Card

    I wouldn't get a 9800GT because its 105 watts and it might be too powerful for my 410 watt power supply. The 5770 is also about 105 watts so I figured that might not work in my computer. Plus I'm not sure if one of these more powerful cards would fit. The 5670 seems to be about the same size as...

    Looking for a new Video Card

    I have an ASUS widescreen monitor and the model is VH236H. The monitor is a 23 inch monitor and supports up to 1920x1080 resolution. I'm currently using a 8600GT which works fine since I play Halo and that isn't a super demanding game. Sometimes I have played Halo 2 and Shadowrun. I played...
