Lightbulb Some new PCI Video Cards for your Worthless Dells...

I was just looking on newegg to see if i could throw in a good video card with this stupid dell B110 before I throw it at an auction in a few days, and it turns out there are some new arrivals in the PCI range, 3 Geforce 9500GT's, and a HIS Radeon HD 5450.
Now there are some plusses and minuses with these cards though:

HIS has 64 bit instead of 128 on 9500GT's
9500GT's only have DDR2 instead of HIS's DDR3
HIS only has 512mb
HIS is DX 11
9500GT marginally outpreforms HIS on benchmarks.

And thats about it.
I have to say, ddr3, 512meg, DX 11, and a good psm score, im going with the HIS if some dumb people dun buy the dell...

And for otherpeeps with worthless Dells/other computers with only 3 pci slots, here are teh links:

Default Re: Some new PCI Video Cards for your Worthless Dells...

Haha! a 1GB 9500GT PCI card! The reason why the 9500 outperforms the 9500 is from the memory AFAIK, since the processing power is bottlenecked already. It actually started since the X1600 era...so the 9500GT is probably the last highest model you can get.

Only reason I would get a PCI GPU is when you have no AGP/PCI-E slot and want to disable your onboard card. I have a Powercolor 4350 PCI card (Silent), and it still sits in the drawer...the frakin' thing takes two slots! The heatsink is huge...would of prefered active, but meh...it helps when you got no choice other than a PCI card.

Oh and...gaming? Pff yeah, good luck running Crysis on decent settings (Or more recent games).
