Thread: Best GeForce FX Card?




  1. #1

    Default

    Well.. I waited forever and ever for the Geforce FX card to come out... and now that it's finally been released, there seem to be countless different versions of it, and equally as many different brands.

    I use my computer primarily for graphic design, 3d design, etc. Not really gaming. What would be the best Geforce FX card to get? Type and brand?

    If you do more 3d design than gaming, your best bet would be a Quadro FX. It's a lot more expensive, but it's a workstation card that's geared more towards graphics applications than games.

    I'm thinking that $1700 USD for a video card might be a little excessive.

    the FX 1000 is $915 and the FX 2000 is $1400. http://www.axiontech.com , my store ;p It's expensive because it's a high end professional graphics card for stuff like autoCAD or 3d Studio Max, movie animation, etc. The ATi's FireGLs are expensive also. You shouldn't really buy it unless it's for a business or you're real serious about whatever work you're doing.

    Nvidia has just announced the Quadro FX 500, their first fully programmable entry-level workstation solution, this could be just what you're looking for.

    The Quadro cards do look a lot better for my purposes than the GeForce cards... But would the low end $380 Quadro FX500 card be better than the high end GeForceFX cards that are of comparable price? I'd like to spend about $500.... but the quadro fx500 is $380... and the next model up is almost $900.... are any of the Quadro4 cards better than the quadro fx500 that are around $500?

    That answers my questions about Quadro4 vs. Quadro FX... but is the low end Quadro FX better than the higher end GeForce FX?

    Simply speaking, Quadro = accuracy, Geforce = speed. Really you should visit your local computer store and see them working for yourself.

    Is that the same cooler that is on the GF FX 5600 that is on the Quadro 500 on the attachment?
