    Video Card Comparison:

    I have found a really neat place were you can Compare Different Video Card GPU's before you buy - A Web Site Link. It can be used to compare older nVIDIA video cards to new ones, compare AMD video cards to NVIDIA and on and on. There is an extensive library that places existing specifications of one video card up against another. I have just never seen such a resource before.
