Re: First Custom Desktop!
dude.... 7 years....
it IS gonna be obsolete in 7 years. 7 years is a LONG time.
i have troble telling you what to buy. i am from danmark, so we have other prices and valuta.
but one thing that quikly came to my mind was the gtx 460.
thats for gaming. and it is a bad gaming video card. thats from the first genaration fermi cards from nvidia. we now have the second genaration, nvidia quckly shipped the new serie becouse thay failed at those fermi cards.
that where to hot, used to much power for the performance. the only card in that serie that where worth buying is gtx 460. the 470 and 480 just failed. the reason the 460 was woth buying was because of the newer inprovet chip.
the gf100 was just a failer (the chip the 470 and 480 usees).
you can buy a gtx 560 for only a bit more then the prices of the 460. 560 is way better.
but you sad that you ware not gonna game on it. then why buy a gaming card. buy a low end card.
nvidia is comming out soon with the 530 and 540. also amd/ati has some good low end cards as well.
video editing is done buy the cpu. there are some programes that can use the graphic card for rendering, but... thats more 3d graphic animator programes and 3d designing programes used for work purposes.
