Need Suggestions For A Video Card For Design
Q: Need suggestions for a video card for design Our IT department is planning on getting me a new computer (3.06ghz wohoo!), and has asked me to suggest a video card for it. Now, I wont be playing any games on this system, so I really don't need anything fancy, so I'm tempted to ask for a basic, 64 or 128meg video card. But, I wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions for what manufacturer I should ask for. The card will be hooked up to a 22" monitor, and I plan to run the video at 1600x1280 @32bit color. Does anyone have any suggestions? I currently have a Radeon DDR in my computer now, and I could just switch it over to the new system, but I figured I should ask for something better and see what happens.
A: -Will your motherboard support AGP 8x? If so, I say go all out and ask for one of these: http://www.ati.com/products/workstation/fireglx1/specs.html or one of these: http://www.matrox.com/mga/products/parhelia/256mb.cfm -I just built a new system myself, and I've found a great video card! I bought a Wildcat VP990 with 512mb ram. I am running it on a 3ghz P4 with two 200gb WD's and 2gb ram. My monitor is a Sony GDM-FW900 24" crt.
