I plan on using this for mostly gaming for such games as Crysis and Far Cry 2. This is going to be part of my new build that will most likely have a i7 920 Processor.

The recommended resolution of my monitor is 1280 x 1024 on a 19". I was planning on purchasing this new build soon, so any opinions would be appreciated.

4890 all the way.

gtx285 + the ftw edition lol is jsut too much for your monitor. I mean the only game it could struggle ... is Crysis at very high with AA and AF enabled. It will play Far Cry 2 maex out though.

Plus if we count with you

2 +8 +5 + "X" as losw pressure turbo = 15 +6 = 21
4+8+9+0 = 12+9+0 = 21

Yes, n vidias performance is still betterr at this particular power index.

Consider buying Hd4890.

Drop the joke already. I've seen at least 10 threads where you've used this "numeric theory".

@Christopher11, according to your theory the 9800GTX is better than the GTX295. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
 


You have a research bureau - yet you can't even spell correctly.

No way.

9+8+0+0 = 17 whereas 2+9+5+ low pressure turbo ) x 2 = 16 +5-6 ) * 2 = 42-44.


17 < 42-44

RivaTNT64 = 6+4+Kaboooom (TNTx400) = 130000000000

I want a TNT....

This is hilarious, the funniest thing I have seen on Tom's.

If you are going to keep your 19" monitor and run at 1280 x 1024 you don't need either of those cards or a Core i-7.

You would be far better off with an Nvidia GTS250 or an ATI 4850. They have more than enough pixel power for a 19" screen. You would be over-paying otherwise.

If you want a better card you should invest in a bigger monitor first.

You only need power house cards like what you are looking at for 24" inch monitors or better.

9800GTX and the 250 GTS are near about the same...what does your theory suggest

9+8+0+0=17

2+5+0=7

????????

The turbo boost is not reflected in the gts 250 name.
Its 2+5+0+10 = 17
