NVidia GeForce Cards.. Palit, Inno3d, Sparkle, or Other Brands...
#1
Which is your best bet?... Is the brand relevant to the performance of the GPU?

Mine's preference is inno3d or sparkle! The first GPU that i bought is a 32mb Inno3d GPu.... it kinda sucks on how it broke 1 year after being bought...

Any Opinions?

Huh??.. since 2008??... Then it would've cost as high as it can be at that time!.. If i remember correctly... Most computers don't use PCI-E cards on that year.. Because we also bought an Inno3d FX5500 for my other desktop.. and it sucked real hard!...

PCI-E card/motherboards does existed in 2008 like my motherboard i bought is a MSI P35-Neo3 since January 2008.

Quoted for truth.
I upgrade parts every 1 to 12 months & that is definitely correct.

I bought a 7900GTX basically as soon as it was released, and that was PCI-E.
How long ago was that released? 2006?

GPU vendors mostly don't make a difference.
Check if you want any of the extras some vendors sometimes include.
There could be games, changed/enhanced cooling or stock overclocking.
The thing to note is that users can do any overclocking themselves very easily.

Buying a card from a more expensive manufacturer is only reasonable, if you are sensitive to loud graphic cards. The cheapest designs are of course the loudest. Every other 'advantage' like Overclocking, 'free' games and programmes, etc. is never worth the extra price, in my experience.
I'd always google through the vendors, how more recent (cooling-)models were received by the customers etc.

Hmmm not exactly, that depends a lot on the manufacturer and the card...

Yeah well, of course there are manufacturers, that build worse cooling solutions and want more money for them Laugh
Seriously, check the reviews, watch your price line and you will be fine.

You could check GPUreview and make sure it's not some horendously underclocked brand/model.
