I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Whats a Good Graphics card for Gaming and using Adobe Software-Graphics


I've done a lot of research on this because I built a new system back in August. While I am not much of a gamer, I needed a very good NLE machine. However, the card I chose is quite the gamer card but had all the extras I needed to run Adobe Video Collection.

I picked the Connect 3D Radeon X850XT Platinum card from Tigerdirect. At the time it was $350 but I know it's cheaper now. It's got everything you need for a demanding application like Premiere Pro 1.5 and its related software. 256MB of GDDR3 memory and dual DVI outs. I highly recommend this card. I've been using it since the start of September with Adobe and it's great.

Your CPU and memory are a bit more of an important factor with rendering and burning though. My new PC has a 3.4Ghz P4 and 2GB of 533Mhz dual channel RAM. It's an exceptional increase in speed and productivity over my old 2.4Ghz and 512 Rambus.

Anybody know one? Or just a regular pci express 64 bit graphics card.

A:Whats a good 64 bit pci express x16 graphics card.

By 64bit do you mean the memory interface? A 64bit memory interface isn't very good though, 128bit is better and 256bit is the best. If you still want a 64bit interface, then this is about as good as you can get.

Hey guys

I just want to know are they any good graphics cards that are good for gaming (like running BF3 on high/ultra) with a price range between £70 - £95

I found this one but not sure if its any good
If there's better than that for a similar price link me please

I have a ACER M3400 Phenom
and I will be upgrading the power supply to 650w soon so that shouldn't be a problem

A:Any good graphics cards for gaming ?

The HD6850 is a decent card but you'll not get ultra high settings and good frame rates from it.
However in your price range it as good as it gets without spending considerably more on a card.
Upgrade the PSU first or at the same time as the card.

A:whats better than a ATI Radeon hd 3200 graphics card ?

Your poor use of punctuation and grammar makes your thread very difficult to understand. If I am understanding you correctly, then I will say that almost anything is better than that. If I'm not mistaken, the 3000 series is not even still manufactured. It was succeeded by the 4000 series which was eventually also succeeded by the 5000 series, which supports DirectX 11.

From personal experience, the Mobility Radeon HD 5650 does pretty well overall.

I know I bought a graphics card just 2 days ago but have decided to take a break from gaming for a bit. Are there any other things I can do online that can use my graphics card?

Example: Watch videos but make them more high-def with my graphics card? Or anything else? Thanks

A:Other uses for a graphics card besides gaming?

Well you can watch movies in good quality if your streaming is good
DVD's will look very good
Otherwise I'm not sure besides the better screen quality already available on very site... it is monitor screen dependent though as just how well things will look

Otherwise you can run some heavy photo editing/ creation programs like free blender... or adobe photo shop pretty well.

That is the 2 reasons someone buys or needs a gpu is to game or run photo editing programs.
Otherwise everyday computing really can run just about everything off onboard graphic's.

Oops forgot Multiple monitors someone would need a gpu.

I'm looking to buy a GTX 580 for PC gaming. I aim to be playing on a 1920 x 1080 display. What parameters should I be looking for (eg speed of GPU, Shader, DDR5, DDR5 RAM size)Click to expand...

GPU speed : Immaterial at 1920x1080. Standard is 772M core/ 1002M memory (4008MHz effective) anything more is overclocked- A few frames per second more. Unless youre benchmarking you wont notice the difference.
Shaders : Locked at twice the frequency of core regardless of card.
GDDR5: All GTX 580's are GDDR5 (Samsung 1250MHz/5000MHz effective iirc)
RAM capacity: 1536MB or 3072MB. 3GB is wasted on a single screen regardless of whether it's 1920x1080/1200 or 2560x1600/1440.

Sarmad said:

chipsets, format support.Click to expand...

Every chipset that has provision for a PCIe x16 slot can use the card.
Format support ????

Sarmad said:

Under what situations would I need a card with 3 GB RAM?Click to expand...

For a single screen, very little. vRAM dependant games (F1 2010, Dragon Age II, Civ 5 for example) can show a little improvement at 2560x1600 resolution. At 1080p there are virtually no situations where you would need 3GB.

Sarmad said:

It's important that the card I get is silentClick to expand...

Then you'll need a watercooled card.

Sarmad said:

I notice at, this one by MSI is indicated as a "Hot Seller" MSI 1536MB GeForce GTX 580 Twin Frozr II/OC NVIDIA Graphics Card - N580GTX Twin Frozr II/OC, however, according to its specs, its it's missing the OpenCL Support and OpenGL 4.1 that's listed for other cards.Click to expand...

All GTX 590/580/570/560Ti/550 etc have full OpenCL 1.1 support (added with Forceware driver 280.19 last month) and OpenGL 4.1.

Sarmad said:

but I don't know what the hidden downside is, since other 3 GB cards ae way more expensive.Click to expand...

Smaller warranty period generally and doesn't have the same cachet (snob value) as other tier one vendors (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA)

Sarmad said:

There's the Gigabyte Super Overclock with 855 MHz GPU for £423.10, but I don't know if the extra MHz make much difference and worth the extra money.Click to expand...

Steve (TechSpot) reviewed the card. You decide.
One of the main selling points is the 3-fan design -i.e. quiet

Sarmad said:

What are the good manufacturers to go for, or does it not matter?Click to expand...

Reference design = Makes no difference (warranty aside)
Custom design = weigh up the factors that are important to you. Quietness, warranty, price, performance. Google reviews.

Sarmad said:

Is there any advantage of getting an ATI/AMD-based card over nVidia these days?Click to expand...

Uh, you don't think that this should have been your first question?
The GTX 580 doesn't represent good bang-for-the-buck -take it from me - I own two of them (EVGA and PNY). At 1920x1080 resolution a HD 6950 1GB card is sufficient performance unless you can distinguish between 4xMSAA and 16xCSAA

Sarmad said:

The reason why I'm going for nVidia is because of the extra support for features such as PhysX and 3D Vision.Click to expand...

If PhysX is important then buy an Nvidia card.

I don't think a 9550 will run doom 3 acceptably, even on low settings, it apparantly gets about 18fps at low quality mode, which is too slow to be really playable.

A card like an agp nvidia 6200 will be much better in doom3, it should be getting about 40fps on high settings.

A:A good HP to buy and a graphics card to put in

assuming that your not interested in building your own machine, that will work if you put a graphics card in it. the X4 620 has decent performance gaming, it lags a bit due to the lack of L3 cache, but for most it will do well when paired with a decent graphics card....which leads me to my next point. The gt9500 GT is an entry level card, it will do okay with games like WOW, but if you are wanting to play games like Far cry 2,crysis,stalker etc at any kind of resolution or detail, the 9500 GT will fall way short. also if you do find the 9500 GT to be the card you want, see if you can save a few dollars and get the 512 version. 1 gb of ram on a low end card is absolutely worthless, and in some cases can actually slow performance a bit.

A:What is a good Graphics Card?

Hello AmazingMSF! Firstly welcome to TSF! Now, depending on your budget you can buy a high end graphics card such as the "Nvidia GeForce 550ti" at a price of 114-120 USD. This card would be guaranteed to play any game at a very rewarding fps (60-100+). Now, if you are looking for something cheaper may I recommend the "Nvidia GT 430" it is low costly and runs all modern games (GW2, Diablo 3, etc) at anywhere between 40-70+ FPS. This is a low costing 60 dollars. (All benchmarks based off games max performance)

Once you buy the graphics card, your motherboard will have a PCIe slot where you insert the videocard as if it was a game boy game and install the drivers from Nvidias home page.

I'm thinking of getting a new low end graphics card for an outdated system of mine. their website XFX Graphics card GeForce 4000 PCI. It says that it has some sort of extra support for multi-monitor.
My plan is to use it in my computer until I buy my new computer (with ) this christmas. Then I'll move the XFX card into the new system for use as a second monitor. I know NVIDIA is good, but I've never heard of XFX Graphics Cards. This card is also 64M (my current one is only 32M).
It's only $60 but I thought I would check in here to see if anyone had any experience with XFX cards, or the multi-monitor support it referred to on the box (though I can't find it on the website).

A:xfx graphics card any good?

XFX is crap - we use to use these where I worked and man did they fail bad and they are cheap.

Also, PCI cards offer really poor performance compared to AGP cards - for gaming they simply aren't worth the investment. As for reusing it for dual monitors later, most new video cards support multiple monitors and you don't have to worry about driver issues with two video cards.

I use my computer to play games (sometimes 3D) but I am not a HARDCORE gamer. I do LOVE games though (who doesn't) and would like to get a decent graphics card. Could someone recommend one?

I play games such as Wolfteam (first person shooter), Maplestory, games on ps2 emulators. Thanks in advance

A friend of mine is thinking of upgrading his graphics card as he has an Nvidia GeForce 6200 atm, which is obviously not that good. He asked me to suggest him a card. His motherboard only supports AGP so the one I came up with is this.

Do you think that is good enough to run games such as Age of Empires 3 or the new Command & Conquer? If you think you know any better cards out there for AGP, please let me know.

I also read somewhere that the Radeon X1950 is the best AGP card out, is this true?

A:Is this graphics card good enough?

Yes, that video card is fine for AOE3 and meets requirements for the new C&C game. Last time I checked the Radeon X1950 was indeed the best AGP card available.

A:Hi, I need some help. Is this a good graphics card?

in terms of your existing set-up, that's a difficult question to answer as it depends on a number of variables..

sure, it's a decent card, especially when compared to your existing FX5200, but you'd need to get a more powerful PSU - as your current 300w model won't cope with the extra load..

it also requires PCiE, and without full details of your motherboard, it's hard to tell if it is a suitable replacement..

Hey All,
I'm running:

Pentium D 3.00Ghz
2GB of Dual Channel RAM
Gigabyte mobo with Intel 865G Chipset.
500w power supply with 5 fans in case.

I'm using my old Elsa 5600 (128mb) video card now (AGP slot) and am having major issues with graphics while playing GTA San Andreas.

I've tried all updates and adjustments to get it to play, but the graphics are always distorted, unless run on lowest resolution. Tired of messing with it, as it seems the card just can't handle that game. (This is very frustrating, as this card is well above minimum specs for game.)

So any recommendations for a new graphics card? Only requirements are that it is AGP, has slots for 2 monitors, and MUST be ABLE to HANDLE graphics-intense games, like GTA. (Sorry for the caps, lol)

Many Thanks!

I'm an architecture student and do a lot of heavy 3d stuff on various programs such as sketchup and 3dsMax, but i'm also a gamer, mass effect/skyrim/crysis etc.

I currently have a radeon hd 4870 in my desktop(ignore my spec on my profile they are for laptop)

it works pretty good for both gaming and 3d design, however i know cards such firepro and quadro are more suited specifically for 3d stuff.

My question is, if i were to get something like an AMD ATI FirePro V4800 (which is in my price range), would it still handle gaming well?

Secondly, can i just leave my 4870 in the motherboard with the fire pro and just switch cables each time i game?


A:Graphics card for both gaming and 3d design

Honestly, with only 400 stream processors the FirePro would not be ideal for gaming; to put it in perspective your 4870 has 800 stream processors.

You could, however use both if you have two PCIe2 x16 slots, as most games today give you the option to choose your graphics card. I'm not familiar with Sketchup or 3DSMax (though I do dabble in Realsoft 3D; an oldie but a goodie), but check to see if these also support choosing the primary graphics driver.

1st choice graphics I want to upgrade to: EVGA 02G-P3-2738-KR GeForce GT 730 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card -

In normal minecraft I get 25-35 fps on normal settings, with shaders I get 3-5 fps. Will the graphics card linked above improve preformance to the 30-40 fps range while in shaders? If not will this graphics card get me there?

More expensive, but willing to buy if the other graphics won't work: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 02G-P4-3751-KR G-SYNC Support 2GB Video Card -

Hello all of you,

I'm actually seeking for a good graphic card but I don't really know what to choose. I want to play lot of games like Crysis, Assassin's Creed, Dirt and other good games meaning also good graphics. I don't want to buy on that I will need to change shortly due to the fact one or more games cannot be played on it.

You can get access to my system specs. I have a PCI Express x16 Port on my mobo.

Thanks in advance for all your help

A:Seeking a good graphics card

Your total budget, and your PSU will define what you should get.

However, any very good graphics card is going to be hitting the limit of performance vs. your CPU with your setup, so I wouldn't go too mad.

Its also very important (read essential) that we know what the total wattage of your PSU is, and preferably also the manufacturer of it. Your current PSU may be incapable of powering even a budget GPU currently.

It is also beneficial to know what resolution you currently game at, what resolution you would like to play at (if you wish to change it) and what sort of settings you currently use (e.g. low, medium etc) as certain graphics cards are better at different resolutions than others due to the target audience they're marketed for.

A:Suggest good graphics card?

You'll struggle massively with such a low budget.
Latest games require new tech, and don't tend ti scale down well to older hardware.
Maybe the second hand market is best, might pick up an AMD 5650 or 5750 for around that price. Probably a big ask though.

Find $100 and your in a better position, as buying a cheaper card now will mean as soon as tech moves on you'll be in the same position as you are now.

While it can handle it, it will be greatly bottlenecked by the CPU. Also, we need to make sure your PSU can handle it, so if you can post your full system specs including the PSU, HDD, motherboard,etc., that would great.

You can probably upgrade the CPU to an 8350 since it uses the same socket. But you may need to apply a BIOS update. BUT, before we get ahead of ourselves, please post full system specs like said above. Thanks.

So, I'm searching for a good graphics card to use in Linux.

I'm selling my ATi Radeon All-in-Wonder 9800SE because
1) Its extra features can't be used in Linux
2) ATi's Linux drivers suck, they don't care about customers.

Right now I'm using Matrox G450 dualhead, but it isn't really up to speed 3D-wise.

Parhelia would be a good choice, it has good image quality, fast enough for 3D, but I'm not sure if it supports dual monitors at 1600x1200. Triplehead is limited to 1280x1024 per display, that I know. Their Linux drivers seem to have problems too, not being updated etc.

3DLabs VP880 would be nice as well, but surprise surprise, they don't support Linux either, drivers are included in commercial Accelerated-X, which doesn't seem to support a self-made Linux.

So, unless someone has decent alternatives, looks like choices are pretty much in Nvidia area, GeForce or Quadro.

But would love any better recommendations.


A:Good graphics card to go with the TS Budget Box,2761-2.html

They recommend a 5670 ~$80 or 5550 for ~$60. I'd say the Radeon 5550 would be more than fine for a general purpose machine and a little gaming.
These are meant to give comparable performance to a Geforce 9600 GT, and more than enough for a little gaming at 1650x1080 resolution or below.

I don't think any of the lower end fermi offerings are particularly good from what I've read. Have to go for GTX 460 and upwards or not at all.

Good morning everyone,

I was not sure where to ask so I thought I should post here in my favorite forum. I have just built a new desktop PC with the following configuration:

Mobo: Gigabyte 78LMT-S2

RAM: 4GB DDR3 800MHz
HDD: Seagate ST3320820AS

The PC is okay for everyday use but I want to improve the graphics. More specifically, I would like to have HDMI (The Mobo has only a VGA port) and be able to play games like StarCraft or Crysis 2. On the other hand, I cannot afford buying the most expensive graphics card out there.

So, what graphics card do you suggest I should buy that fits my hardware configuration and requirements?

Although I have done nothing to my computer, my games have begun to run very badly, even with all graphics turned on their lowest settings despite the fact I can normally run them on the highest. I have not made hardware changes to my comp and all games played fine only a couple of days ago.

- I have since restored my computer to an earlier date
- Check my comp for viruses, spyware, defragmentation, registry check, disk errors, adware, hijackthis, disk cleanup
- I cannot remember installing any new programs either

The problem is still therehowever, the temp on the graphics card is also fine, running at normal levels. Everything else on the computer runs well.

Thanks in advance for any help.

So I currently have an NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT graphics card, it it works pretty well for the games I play. However, Sonic Generations (a game I purchased through a Steam game sale), runs slowly and gets anywhere from 18-11 frames per second. Even on it's lowest quality settings and lowest resolution (720 x 480 @ 29Hz) it's still a tad slow.

Any suggestions on an upgrade? I have a budget...I mean, I'm a college student, after all...

A:Decent Graphics Card for Gaming on Windows 8?

Two things:

You might get more responses if you gave a budget for the card.

Your 300W power supply is a bit weak for most significant upgrades. For example, Sapphire ( requires a 400W PSU for their cards that don't use any auxiliary PCI-E power connectors. If you need to swap the PSU, stay with the respected manufacturers (Antec, Corsair, Seasonic are usually recommended, but there are others.)

A:Noob trying to upgrade graphics card for gaming

What is your monitor screen resolution, and how much do you want your graphics to improve, and how much money do you have to spend. A high end graphics card will roughly require a quality 500 watt power supply too.

what is the best gaming graphics card that i could buy for a price around ?100 (bit more or less) bearing in mind the power supplier i currently have is a 400w power supplier

thank you

A:recommendation for budget gaming graphics card

You are likely more limited by a 400W PSU than your budget. First check you vendor and sort by price, then check the specs for the one with 400W or less minimum PSU.
An nVIDIA 650 of some kind may fit you well.

Hey guys, I think I have a minor problem, well when I was playing CoD I felt the back of my computer and it was overheating. Then I took off the case and watched my graphics card (Radeon 9800 SE) fan it it wasn't working that good (It was like slowing down) So I think I might either need a better fan because my current fan dosent do well when playing games at high and sometimes at medium settings. So if you guiys could reccomend any good graphic card fans or cooling system I would really appreciate it

hello everyone! i currently have THIS PC and its good enough specs to game! well all but the graphics, it will run games now such as black ops 2 easily but i need dedicated graphics for some games. My problem is, I would like to put a graphics card inside but it's a very VERY low power psu (300W) so is there a affordable graphics card that would let me run other games ? such as blacklight retribution?

Thank you

A:A graphics card good enough to game with a 300W psu to run it?

I don't think there's much you can get really. On the Nvidia side there's cards like the GT430 and GT630 that require a 300w PSU. They should be able to handle Black Ops 2 and Blacklight Retribution. Not sure what there is that AMD offer. Above the GT430 and GT630 you ideally need a 400w or 500w PSU.

I'm building my dad a computer. I use my own computer for gaming mostly so I don't know a whole lot about openGL cards or even if my dad would need one. I'd like to spend from 100-300 bucks. cheaper being better. I guess the most important thing is just that I don't bottle neck this thing. He's retired and these are basically the hobbies he plans to use his computer for: poser v.4.0, Bryce v.4.0, and Photoshop v. 5.0, some form/capacity of autocad, and making home dvds.

so far I've got:
1 gig of PC3200
160 Gb HD
AU13 FIC mb

Also I have a spare ATI 128 Mb 8500le I could throw in... but I wonder if it would do him any good....

so far I've just been looking around Tom's hardware and had one friend recommend "matrox" cards. but more suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks!

A:good graphics card for my acer 22inch lcd

The max resolution for your monitor should be about 1680x1050 right? Confirm that if you can. In any case, the best bet for you would be to get this video card and this CPU for the best performance.

I've been having a lot of problems with my graphics card, Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I can't seem to enable aero or play 3D games like Minecraft. I tried to download other graphics cards, but they don't seem to install correctly or just won't work or show up at all. Can someone recommend me a good graphics card that can work? Thanks

A:Help: Need a good Graphics Card for Windows 7 32bit?

You are talking video card DRIVER, you need the current one for your system, VGA is the default driver that you would also see if running 7 in safe mode, it is HORRIBLE for anything but testing.

So, I suggest you visit (or for gpu-z) and download and run SPECCY to determine your actual video card, and acquire the driver from the web site of the brand in question, or the PC/laptop's manufacterer's site.

Even if it's just an on the motherboard GPU, those programs should find it.

Not sure where to place this thread, so forgive me if it is in the wrong section.

Hi all,

I've been playing Football Manager 2012 and seem to get a recurrent crash whereby the screen goes either white with pinstripes or black with tan pinstripes. The other day it went black with a few large pixels (through which I could see the gamescreen). Interstingly enough it then went back to the game ok.

I've downloaded catalyst control centre for my card (ATI HD5770) and check for updates, but I'm pulling my hair out.

Interestingly I seem to be getting the occasional BSOD now (which I have posted on the relevant forum).

Are there other drivers I should be updating and if so which ones?

appreciate any help.

A:Crash during gaming? Poss graphics card issue.

Sorry you are having problems.

By relevant forum, do you mean:

Crashes and Debugging - Windows 7 Forums

If so, I would just use that thread to resolve this issue. Most likely they are related, and it helps avoid cross-threads.

There, you can follow instructions for posting BSODs.

Hi all,

I want to buy a new graphics card for playing GTA4 etc. I am looking at the 9800gtx+ which I can get for £115 + delivery, any opinions?

A:Solved: Best bang for buck gaming Graphics card

Basically, Radeon 4850 is better for the same price: but if you're an nVidia fan, might want the 9800 GTX+ anyways. Or if you're a HL1(or some mod) mapper, using Valve Hammer Editor, then get 9800 GTX+, hammer runs slow on Ati cards ;/
Are you sure your power supply is enough for these cards?
