Default Re: Best graphic card for 200-300 budget?

I suppose. GTX 260 Core 216. Some brands call it the Core 216, some call it the GTX 260 BlackEdition OCX or something like that. Just be sure that the card has 216 shader cores.

Actually, 1080p is 1920x1080. 1920x1200 would still fall in the category, but would be a higher resolution, even if only by a little bit.

If he has a decent one like a corsair, then he should be able to use a GTX280.

Don't go for the factory overclocked ones. You aren't actually getting anything better for the price, you're just paying for different settings you can do yourself. Also, for just a bit more you could get a 275 which would last longer getting good FPS.

I would say a stock 275 will do fine. Evga is one of the few manufacturer's that could give a damn less if you overclock. They know you'll do it as much as you know you will. So they warranty you even for overclocking.
