  imputanium 17:56 10 Feb 2010

Which is the best Dual 1Gb graphics cards to work with a 22inch monitor and a Phenom II 965 Quad core and 8GB memory

Mixture of Nvidia and ATI

ATI HD 4650

Thanks guys

They have to be exactly the same to run as a pair

nvidia = SLI

ATI = crossfire

so it will much depend on what your MOBO will support...

Those cards are around mid-low end, so not really worth running in dual (SLI/Crossfire) configuration. You'll be better off getting a better single card for similar money.

When you reply, let us know your intended usage, PC case type (ATX, full-height) & PSU make+model. G

no reason to get an old card now as there are ati dx11 cards to suit all pockets.

DUal 1gb cards from the ones above..

If you are a serious gamer you wouldn't consider any of the VGA cards you have listed especialy the 9500GT which is a complete donkey of a card...
