Do the surge of questions asking about video cards, I thought I would put together a couple of links to help forum members.

One of the major hardware review web sites right now is Tom's Hardware Guide www.tomshardware.com. Every month THG release their list of best buys for video cards in different price ranges. This is the first place to look for ideas for upgrading/building.

Septembers list can be found here. This is a very non-biased comparison based on price/performance of many
different video cards. Most of us "hardware guys" here use this as a reference for advice.

A second invaluable link is their quarterly benchmark listing of many different cards running different
games. (This includes Crossfire and SLI setups.) This quarters chart can be found here. If you have a specific game that you want to play, then go here to find out what works best! You can also check the THG

"best buys" on this chart.

I hope that these two links can provide a little clarity into the ever changing world of video cards. I will try to re-post the new link every month for the "best buys" as well as update quarterly the link to the benchmark results.
Apathy: If we don't take care of the customer,maybe they'll stop bugging us.

Customer Disservice: Because we're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.
