Hi!


I have posted a few other, forum posts about building my own Desktop! I am also building my own Laptop now too! But am having trouble deciding on which Graphics Card I should get! So if anybody out there could help me out what is the strongest Graphics card from this list and would be best suited for a Alienware M18x!

Dual 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680M - SLI® Enabled

Dual 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 675M - SLI® Enabled

2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680M

Dual 2GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon™ HD 7970M - CrossFireX™ Enabled

2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 675M

2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660M

Which of these would give me 3D Graphic Capabilities. 120hrtz Motion Flow (or more), and 1080p HD? And if more than one which one is better recommended?

lol its common to say that the best graphics card is the most expensive one

but have you check Toms Hardware for example? -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/Components,1/Graphics-Cards,4/
this is a recent performer they reviewed -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-ghz-edition-review-benchmark,3232.html

you can also check this -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html
currently the winner is this -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-6.html

Honestly check out toms hardware, be a smart builder. 2GB GDDR5(I can't speak for your case since you do have a specific goal that I'm not familiar with) is kind of overkill and very applications, let alone games, benefit from it.

I built my PC about a year ago. I spent 250 on a 6950, and then 6 months later bought a second 6950.

Together they work faster and better than a single 580 and comparable to the price. Of course, if you pony up for the second 580 youll blow that setup out of the water, but again you're paying double the price.

My advice, is go research, find 2 good cards that work really well together. You'll get better performance for the cost.

If price is no hassle, the I personally recommend the GTX660...
If you are on a budget and want something that consumes less power I advise going for the GTX680... But from what I have heard, the GTX660 actually out-performs the GTX680...

Speaking of which, can anybody suggest a good gaming PC for Rs. 50000 [$900]...?

Well if your wanting to use 3D you'll need to stick with nVidia. As for dual 680M, chances are the system wont be able to fully utilize 2 of those cards running SLI. I would go with the single 680M or dual 675M.

i dont like amd. Just my experience but ive had issues with drivers and stuff in the past, and the customer service when i called was horrible. Though this was about 6 years ago, but ive had nothing but good experience with the nvidia chips so i havent had a reason to go back to amd

Check out ibuypower.com or xoticpc.com
And no they're not spam sites lol. For about 700-800 USD you can customize everything from the size/shape/style of the tower to cooling system, RAM, optic drive, processor, graphics cards you name it. I found some really good combos for around 750 USD and if you actually want to spend up to 900 USD your gaming rig would be sick. For xoticpc I find that their laptop combos are better but I've never really looked at their pc rigs so you never know. =) hope it helps

He's building a laptop, why would he buy a prebuilt? You can't even buy prebuilt gaming laptops as far as I know anyway.

maingear lets you customize laptops. i was looking around before i built mine and noticed that. Though buying pre built stuff for gaming seems stupid to me at this point, now that i know how to do it. Its more fun to do it yourself and its cheaper too. the only real downside i could see is not having tech support to call, but you could still generally call the manufacturer of the part thats having issues, you just have to be able to tell them you know its their part thats causing it.
