hello

looking to upgrade my pc with a nvidia card and mayby more mem (got 2 gb atm)

got 5 pcs, all dual core's only 1 with a nvidia that seti see and use (gf9600), on my media pc next to my tv he see my gf9400 but says it has toless mem to use it (card has 512 but seti says 225)


my 5 pc give a rac of 3480 atm when keeping them on for 24 hours, wich my main pc does 1650 of (so not much)

for my main and media pc i want a good card, proberly a gfx 260 for my media and mayby same for main or the new 400 serie's, yust wondering if that worth the mony


so main question is what the rac of the cards, alrdy saw some stats at other thread

GT240 - 5,000
GTS250 - 7,000
GTX260-216 - 12,000

Gt 220 - ?
GTX 470 - ?
Gtx 480 - ?
Gtx 285 - ? wondering why this card cost somuch

also does the manufacter makes much differenace ?

gigabyte has the cheapest gtx 260 i can find, the 470 is same priceclass as others like asus, msi, xfx , evga, zotac

and do i need big powersupply with those cards ? for 470 i asume yes but the 260 ?

when i put 2 cards in 1 pc will they both work on full speed ?

thx in advance for any reply's

Read this
GeForce 200 Series
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_200_Series

"do i need big powersupply":
In the table there are Watts max consumed by every GPU, GFLOPS and many more spec

"when i put 2 cards in 1 pc will they both work on full speed ?":
Yes, why not?


"also does the manufacter makes much differenace ?":

I think Palit makes good designs
http://www.palit.biz/

Get a Sonic version (pre-overclocked), e.g.
PALIT GeForceĀ® with CUDA GT 240 Sonic (1024MB GDDR5)
