What would be the best choice of Graphics Card?

I'll be getting my tax return next week, and I've been looking to upgrade my PC for a long while now.

My graphics card isn't as high-end as I would like. I will be upgrading it, and would like some advice.

My price range will be anywhere from $100 to MAYBE $300. And my requirements are such: Runs high-end, and other ones, PC games at max-quality, with ZERO screen-lag. High FPS. Now, games I'm talking about are, ones like Mass Effect 1%26amp;2, Bioshock, Fallout 3, World of Warcraft, Left 4 Dead 2, Dragon Age Origins, Team Fortress 2, etc. And supports at least DirectX 10. MAYBE 11, since I heard news of that being way better than 10? But 11 support might jack the price up, so I don't know.

A card I have been looking at is the Radeon HD 4850. Now keep in mind, I don't know a whole lot about graphics cards. Just looking for the performance that I have always desired in my computer.

Also, it might be required of my PC to upgrade either my RAM or Processor, though I doubt it. Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.66GHz, and 2gigs of RAM. Might I need a better processor/more RAM?|||I have the ATI 4870X2 2GB, I have to say its impressive, but you need a cool running case to handle it.

I would suggest you get more ram if you MB can take it.|||I have a core 2 duo 2.8 and 4 gigs of ram. After alot of research 6 months ago I picked up a 9800 GTX+ 1 GB for about $180 (I think $150 nowadays) and the poor thing SCREAMS fast at 1920x1080 with even the best games. Plus it works with mac os x (a personal bonus to me). Check out its reviews!

Oh, and get your stuff at newegg. Its super cheap and has never let me down.|||For less than $200 you can get an nVidia GTX 260 card. These are high end video cards with GDDR3 memory, and will allow your game choices to play without pause. If you buy this card and you see lag, pause, or delay; it won't be from the video. You do however need an available PCI-e slot on your motherboard.|||ATI Radeon HD 4890 my friend : ) you wont be sorry, thats a promise. Happy gaming.

$5,777.00|||It would play the WOW just as well as a $1500-2000 computer, here's why. WOW is a game that doesn't recieve a huge performance boost from a multiple graphics card setup. Here's a link to a benchmark of WOW running 2-way SLI with a GTX 580 vs. a single GTX 580. Adding a 3rd card would probably get you just a few more extra FPS.

Normally, you would see a 50%-90% performance boost by adding a second card. With WOW you're getting 30% at the most. Also, you will never visually see the difference once you go over 60FPS. A single GTX 580 is giving you 100FPS on a 2560x1600 monitor, that's impressive.鈥?/a>

Here are the specs of a Computer that would play WOW at max

Core i5-2500K

P67 or Z68 motherboard

8gb DDR3

128gb SSD Drive SATA3

1TB drive for storage

Single GTX 580

850w power supply

A case with good airflow to keep the parts cool

Mouse and keyboard of your choice.

27" Samsung 1920x1080 monitor.

I would look at building the PC yourself. You will still get at least a 3 year warranty on all of the parts. You'll save money and you would have more control when it comes to future upgrades.|||this computr for just word of craft wtf ... This is a strong syrtem .

I have a 2 years collected computr that cost about 1800 $ and since i got it i only play games on ultra setting . Crysis , black ops , c搂c etc...|||Thats one lucky boyfriend you have their. O.o|||OMG THATS WAY OVERKILL LIKE REALLY I NEVER SEEN SOMEONE WILLING TO SPEND THAT MUCH MONEY ON A PC. Oh and don't buy from IBUYPOWER or CYBERPOWER because they are bull. They sent me their computers with broken parts, a lot of it not plugged in, and overall they tried to keep my money. Once again, OVERKILL I built my pc for $1000 and it runs all new games fine. Although, I would get that beast machine, it would last years and years without having to be upgraded!

New: He only needs one SSD, Video card, and monitor, but who gives a crap, IT OWNS. Although, I really would go with one monitor. No need for more then 1 as then theres black lines in between each game.|||Holy cow that is the ultimate computer setup. It never fails to amaze me how people think they need a supercomputer to play WOW when a $500 computer from best buy would work just fine.

I'm sure a setup like this is a dream to most people as well but there is a lot better ways to spend close to six grand then on this.

Why is it that PS 3 has such good graphics (same or better than PC), and still manage to run smoothly?

How come the PS 3's graphics are on the same level, or better than PC games, even though the PS 3 graphics card is only half as powerful as the recent graphics cards? I would say the PS 3 graphics would match any new PC game with graphics turned to the highest setting.

For example, when I play Dragon Age 2 on the PS 3, the graphics are excellent, and so is the performance.

But, when I play Dragon age 2 on my Core i7 computer with 6 Gig ram and Geforce GTX 295, I have to turn the graphics setting to the lowest one, and it still lags?|||Apparently, there are others having problems running this game with NVIDIA cards and it doesn't look like there's a fix. See the link below. Most likely, the game wasn't optimised (coded correctly) for the NVIDIA architecture. The PS3 hardware is much less powerful than a GTX 295, but the game runs well on it's architecture. Ever notice that you can't turn up the eye candy on console systems. PC graphics are way better and you can't game at 2560x1600 on a console.|||Technically that is not true. PC's will always outperform any console for the simple fact that PCs are not locked into their graphics card. Remember that the PS3 and XBox have the same graphics card from 3-5 years ago. They cannot change this ever. When they made the chipset for them back then they were equivalent to the best PC could do at the time. Since time has past newer, better cards have been made for the PC. However, to get them one needs to fork out cash and HOPEFULLY there are developers out there willing to push those cards to their max...which most wont...why? because they need to ensure there are sufficient consumer base to buy their product.

All in all though when you compare games on a whole the PC graphics will logically be better than PS3/XBox....but it is dependent on the developer. For example Crysis 2 cannot be done to the same level on PS3 ...but they certainly can trick the PS3 to remove certain aspects to give the illusion.|||the ps3 has all of its hardware dedicated to running one application- your game. Whereas your PC may be running other applications in the background (explorer.exe, steam, etc.)

I don't know why dragon age would lag on your machine, make sure you're not running anything in the background. Close all applications before you start the game, my friend.|||Because PS3 focuses there's game only on graphics and are often not fun not to mention there on blue ray disc so they can hold alot more.|||the blu-ray disk drive and graphics card combo will do this every time

they don't need to run the memory all over the place just to play a game

and it cost only 300.00

HP pavilion dv7-3180us Entertainment laptop, gaming performance?

Here are some of the specs, but I basically want it to be able to run Dragon Age: Origins.

*Processor - Intel Core i7-720QM processor with Turbo Boost Technology

*Processor speed - 1.60GHz; with Turbo Boost Technology up to 2.80GHz

*Memory - 6GB DDR3 System Memory (2 DIMM) Max supported =8192MB

*Accessible memory slots - 2

*Display - 17.3" Diagonal HD+ High-Definition LED HP BrightView Widescreen Display (1600x900)

*Video graphics - Nvidia GeForce GT 230M with up to 2815MB total graphics memory with 1024MB dedicated

*Hard drive - 640GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive (SATA)

Opinions anyone? I know people have played Dragon Age on Pavilions, there have been videos on youtube, but I wanted personal opinions of those who have had experience with the dv7 series and their gaming performance and quality.

-Many thanks|||Please be very careful when buying an HP. In my opinion they are garbage. I say this as they have good specs but customer support is terrible and their systems are not much better. My wife owns an HP CT1000 tablet ($1700) that has been back to HP 3 times now. My less than a year old HP printer bit the dust, HP already wants $ to fix a timing issue with the paper feeder.

  • What happened to the "game" in "video game"?

    It seems like every gamer considers things like story and graphics and multiplayer to be the most important components of a good video game, when the game part seems to get left behind.

    For instance, I love to play a good shooting game. Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, and Gears of War are amongst my favorites. But out of those, Gears is the longest, and it's a little over 10 hours on your first playthrough. Really? Ten years ago, ten hours was considered too short. Now, it's considered just right. The gameplay is great in these games, but it just doesn't last. Multiplayer does not, in any way, shape, or form, make up for a short game. No game should need to stand on multiplayer alone. I don't care if it's Quake 3 or Unreal Tournament, it ought to be against the law to concentrate on multiplayer.

    So, in my quest to find a long game well worth my hard earned money, I bought (over a period of a few months) Fallout 3, both Mass Effects, Oblivion, and I'm looking at Dragon Age. Never before has an RPG held my interest, but that's because I’ve always associated RPG with "stand in a line and take turns punching each other with a menu button." This concept was one I hated, and still do, but the WRPG's that I've got are immersive, interesting, and expansive. But the actual game parts are still a bit lackluster. Out of all of them, only Mass Effect 2 could really work without any story or dialogue. I'm also having a hard time calling ME2 an "RPG" with a straight face, more like a story driven third person shooter. The "take cover" style of game play just doesn’t work anywhere near as well as it does in Gears 2. It isn’t bad, by any means, but if you’re going to rip off a game you might as well go all the way, and ME2 only half-heartedly does it. In Gears, you can roll away, crouch and run, crouch in cover, and the camera swings to the right or left of your character depending on where and how you are aiming. ME2 doesn’t have any of this, only the basic “back against the chest-high wall” maneuver.

    What I’m saying is that nowadays, games are too focused on the “other stuff”. I’d like a game that’s as long as Oblivion, as polished as CoD4, controls as well as Gears 2, has a story as expansive and interesting as Mass Effect, and just drops any thoughts of “multiplayer” whatsoever. Any suggestions, and who agrees?

    Sorry for the incredibly long question. I have one more - Is Dragon Age turn-based at all?|||1. Halo: CE had the best story of the three primary Halo games and those you mentioned in the first paragraph. I understand that it's an arguable point, but I'm speaking from a strictly structural point of view.

    2. Campaigns in video games are getting shorter because the plots in the stories are more interesting and, as such, need to be more condensed to maintain pacing and flow.

    3. Agreed, multiplayer does not define the game experience. You should understand, however, that the casual gamer is the largest demographic to play video games and the competitive gamer is the largest demographic to purchase games when they are first released. Highlighting good multiplayer is a marketing tool, as well as an extension of a game's primary function.

    4. The cover system employed by Gears and ME2 was pioneered by an underappreciated game called KillSwitch, which was then revolutionized by Ubisoft for Rainbow Six: Vegas. Gears is by no means original and ME is not copying Gears. RS:V2 was far more successful than either of those games. Cliff Bleszinski said himself he took inspiration from RS and made the cover system more like a game of paintball, which multiplayer strongly represents: People hiding behind cover until some one hacks you to bits with a chainsaw

    5. A game can't have everything. I don't think, and hundreds of thousands of other people will agree with me, that a game like Oblivion is incomplete or lacking in any way. MW2 certainly has multiplay failings, and the character in gears 2 doesn't move quickly enough in multiplayer for my tastes. There are plenty of single player games out there that are interesting and have multiplayer, like MW2, RS:V2, and Gears 2, that don't hurt the experience of the story. Halo: Reach and ODST are great examples. Just don't let the multiplayer bother you.

    6. I never experienced turn-based strategy in DA, and I don't believe it was ever marketed as such.|||Whether the game stands on multiplayer, partially or alone, is dependent on what the game is. Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 are amazing games. They are great games that are multiplayer. If you haven't played L4D 1-2 or TF2, you are cheating yourself out of fantastically balanced game play either in co-op or versus.

    I'm not entirely certain what you mean by "actual game parts" or the notion that a game like Mass Effect 2 or any RPG would need to be judged without dialogue or story. RPG's are about telling stories. Games, though defined by interactivity, are frequently considered vessels for telling stories. If you don't want story, play Tetris. Or pong.

    Gears of War did not invent cover systems, and utilizing a common mechanic does not mean that you are trying to rip off another game, or that you did not do it as well.

    If you have trouble calling Mass Effect 2 an RPG with a straight face, that might be indicative of that fact that you do not know what an RPG is:

    "A role-playing game (RPG) is a broad family of games in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting, or through a process of structured decision-making or character development" (…

    Huh. Sounds an awful lot like taking on the role of Commander Shepard. Choosing Paragon, Regegade or neutral resolutions to various situations in-game to progress a narrative. Also, it has the common RPG elements of customization, party and equipment configuration.

    No, Dragon Age Origins is not turn-based. Yes, it is an RPG. Lots of the aforementioned mechanics will be present. Not alot of ducking behind cover and shooting things.|||If you buy Civilization V and set it on the right length, it could take days, if not weeks. Oh and If you are hoping for a FPS with no multiplayer? :) Good luck!

    HAHAHA|||I agree to an extent, but I think you're just a bit too picky lol. To me, the Mass Effect games aren't supposed to be like the Gears games. They're two TOTALLY different type games, and the "take cover" aspect isn't all that important in Mass Effect. And you can't completely drop multiplayer, but I get what your saying. But just think about Halo without multiplayer. It wouldn't be Halo. Sure, I'd like a better campaign gameplay, but multiplayer is SO much more important in a game like that. That's why people play it, because they wanna get together with their friends (whether it be in person or online). If they could package all those things into a game, that'd be awesome I'd definately buy it, but game makers focus on multiplayer because that's what appeals to the majority of gamers nowadays.|||That may be your opinion. There are plenty of games that don't involve multiplayer if you don't want to use it. Multiplayer, and specifically online Muliplayer and MMORPG ensure that people will play the game for longer periods of time without moving on, so that game and console companies can make money from subscriptions and DLC.

    Another part of it might also be that nowadays, Game Worlds are more open and have a lot more Eye Candy than they did long ago. There's more to explore, do, and see.

    Which would you buy? (Computer or laptop question)?

    I've been wanting a new laptop/computer for a while now and have a computer and a laptop that I'm stuck with. I just can't choose which to buy. As I have a small bedroom, putting the computer in would be hard work, but it is rather good. I'm not sure If the laptop would come anyway near the computer? I'm wanting to use it for gaming, like Rome: Total War, Dragon Age: Origins and MMO's like LOTRO and Star Wars: Old Republic etc and obviously general internet uses, Facebook/Tumblr etc. At the moment I have a nice little Toshiba (Perfect for internet browsing and some games but it couldn't handle Dragon Age 2. I will still keep this laptop though.
