I need to get a few video cards - one for an existing build, one for a new build and one to have as a backup. I'm not a gamer so I don't care about performance. I just need these to be able to handle standard display resolutions and HD playback. I'm going to go with nVidia cards since I'm used to the control interface and I have video conversion software that uses CUDA. I checked the excellent review of power consumption from behardware.com here and I'm focusing on G/GT 2xx cards right now although the 8400GS cards would also be in my price range. The thing is that I don't really know what the difference is between these cards. For example, although the 8400 is similar in power consumption and price, wouldn't I be better off going with the newer chips? The cards don't all have to be the same as long as they have dual outputs and are pci-e 2. A couple of G 210's seems to be the way to go, but I welcome suggestions. I'm flexible on the price but as I said, I don't need high performance. There seems to be a lot of choice in the sub-$50 range. I will go higher if there is a good reason though. Thanks. edit: no factory overclocked cards please - stock only since I'm relying on behardware's charts linked to above.
