New Videocard: PCie 16x, 128 bit, DH, passive

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Bernard111, Feb 12, 2007.

  1. I'm currently using Nvidia NVS 285 videocards .

    Which would would be the natural path of upgrade for another card with these characteristics:

    - PCIe x16
    - 128 bit
    - at least 128 Mb RAM
    - at least 350/400 Mhz RAMDAC
    - dual/multiscreen support
    - Passive headsink (no fan noise allowed!)

    Any alternative with the above specs apart the Nvidia NVS 440?

  5. You've already go the best card for trading. I'd stick with NVS if I were you. Anything else is more likely to degrade your system, not improve it.
  6. What is wrong with the NVS 285? I'm curious, because I almost went with the Nvidia NVS a while back.
  7. gnome, I know you are favorable to NVS cards; in fact I chose the NVS 285 on the past thanks to your suggestions... :D

    .. but why do you expect a degradation of performance switching to one of those alternative 128-bit videocards?
