I saw this website once, where you enter the model of the Video Card and it shows that video card place on a list of all the other video cards, so you can see what the next step up from that might be.
I've wanted to play the new Skyrim for a long time, but my video card is so old that the game won't even install. Skyrim requires a GTX 260 or better and so I'm wondering if I might not get a VC that's a step or two higher than that, and maybe for less. Sometimes you can find a good deal.
I'm only going to buy from NewEgg (personal preference) and I only want nVidia options (also personal preference). And I'd PREFER to buy only EVGA but that's a bit negotiable.
So either the website or recommendations on specific video cards. Here's the one I'm looking at right now:
I could spend up to maybe $150 on a VC, but there needs to be a compelling reason to do so. this one has 4 Gbyte of RAM, compared to 2 Gbyte of other cards with the same GPU, so that's why I chose this one, even though I know that onboard Video RAM isn't as big of a deal as it used to be.
