my PNY NVIDIA 8800 GT just stopped working yesterday
before i buy a new grapic card, i´d like to hear your opinion on which one to buy. basically i want a high end card. google search with keywords like “high end card linux” did only give me cards for around 2008. i´d like it if there is a newer card, however i am open to buy an equivalent of my NVIDIA 8800 GT.
my requirements in order:
- at least as good performance as the NVIDIA 8800 GT
- good and reliable driver with 3d support
- gnome2/KDE4 with compiz and good performance
- maximum price of 150,00 €
- low heat
- low sound
- open source driver
- directx11 and opengl 3.3
- possibility of 2 monitors
- possibility of 3 monitors
i believe in open source, but in this case it´s just got to work with high performance 3d. on linux i play SPRINGRTS which worked on 1920*1080 like a charm. on windows - which is not a big part of this - i like to try out new games (thus dx11).
MSI P35 Neo3
4 GB DDR2 Ram
400 W power supply unit
however i never had big problems with NVIDIA before, so i´m probably gonna stick with NVIDIA, but i´m open to new stuff!
not all of these requirements must be met. as for now, i´d go with one of these cards (links in german):
Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 OC
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT * 1GB * 1024MB DDR3 * 9600 GT * PCI-Express
AXLE nVidia GeForce GTS250 1024 MB Grafikkarte (PCI-e, 1GB DDR3 Speicher, 128-bit GTS 250 Windows 7 DVI, VGA, HDMI)
and my old one again:
thx for your opinion!
