    Comparing Video cards

    Hi Quimby Here. Can anyone tell me the difference between two NVIDIA'S graphics card lines the 200 series (GTX280 or GTX 260) and the 9 series line (9800 GTX or GTX+) ? It looks like that 200 series is slower but has more video ram then the 9*** series.

    I have a 8800GT, love it. To answer your original question. The difference between the 9x00 series and the 2x0 series, is the 2x0 series is faster, and more expensive. Instead of calling their video cards 10900's or 10840's or something, nVidia dropped the 10 off their new cards, so now it's just 260 or 280 instead of 10260 or 10280.

    If money is not an option grab an NVIDIA 9800GX2. Watch your Power supply Max Wattage though, in any high end video card upgrade, make sure you have ample to spare over and above the stated minimum.

    A GTX280 is much more powerful than a 9800GX2. If money is not a problem, GTX 280 is the way to go.it will be best for you
