You only need one of those cards now, maybe in a year or two put in another.

Default Re: Vid Card's For Gaming

I'm running a single GTX 275 in an i7 build..

It takes everything I throw at it.


I wanted an Nvidia, I love the 4870s/90s but I was stuck between a 260(with the option to get a second one down the road and a 275.

I've researched the GTX 275 a lot and I am really enjoying it.

Good Luck

It is just not logical to get two cards when you can get one much better one.
Yes but two of those would still beat out the one he picked and he'd be good for a while.

Or, we could just all buy this and be in a perfect graphical world...
