All those GFX card numbers which is best

  rupie 17:21 10 Dec 2008

I have to upgrade my GFX card. I have a self build and it is a few years old but I do not understand all the different numbers - 9400, 8400, 4600, 4800, 3640 DDR 2,3,4, radeon, geforce, saphire gigabyte etc. please could someone give me a kind of resumé or top 10 type thing of them in order for performance. DO NO NOT recommend which one you think is best I just want to look at a top ten type thing. At the moment I have a sapphire radeon x800 PCI express 256MB DDR3 and need to change it for editing and not games, although I run a duel display system (once you have 2 monitors you will never go back to 1)

Tom's hardware is as good a guide as any, and better than most.

"I have to upgrade my GFX card."

One question - why do you think you have to upgrade? - maybe you have an issue not related to your graphics card?

I have to upgrade because the edit software I need is above the spec of my current card. What is tom's hardware ?

None of us know everywhere - that's why I suggested you read the link.
