    FAQ & Section Info

    What are the best PCIE video cards out there today?

    Right now the top of the line for Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 ti line while AMD graphic cards are pushing the Vega line (Vega 64 / Vega 56). These cards would be recommended for high performance gaming - but if you're looking for something great but a little lower end you can always check out the Nvidia GTX 1070's or AMD RX 580's.

    Who makes most of the GPUS in the market today?

    Two companies make graphics card processor units (GPUs) for most of the cards out there - Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). Nvidia builds the GeForce and GTX lines of cards, while AMD builds the Radeon series. But there are many more companies that package these processors into cards you can purchase - the most popular video card manufacturers include companies like XFX, EVGA, MSI, Gigabyte Zotac, and Sapphire.

    Why do I need a Video Card?

    Video cards create the graphics you see when you use your computer. If you're reading this text right now, it's thanks to the graphics card in your system. At minimum, upgrading this part of your PC can give improve your computer's performance in day-to-day tasks by making applications load faster and render smoother. If you choose a higher-performing model, graphics cards can help you run the latest games at high resolution or across multiple displays. Because video cards specialize in rendering graphics, they are able to generate virtual images with generally higher performance than CPUs. This gives your system the extra processing power it needs to play games, run 3D design applications, or to just give you a smoother day-to-day user experience.

    What are the different options for Video Cards?

    Options for video cards vary widely, so it all depends on what you want to do with your computer. For users who use their computers mainly for internet access and email, there are lower level video cards that help the graphical interface of applications render faster, and perform other behind-the-scenes functions to allow for an overall improved user experience. Mid-range cards are designed for users that like to play some games, watch HD movies, or do some lighter graphics work such as photo editing. Then there are performance-level video cards which are aimed at users who play graphically-intense games, create 3D models and animations, edit and render video, or overclock their system to improve performance.

    Users who compete in games where the difference between winning and losing can be decided by a single shot use the latest NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon cards. Their blindingly fast clock speeds, multiple processors, and large memory capacity make them a must-have for any gamer who wants to increase their K/D ratio to a fearsome level. Professional designers, architects and 3D artists might be more in the market for NVIDIA GeForce GTX and AMD FirePro GPUs, which provide robust, reliable performance without the heavy price tag of their more powerful peers. There are also TV tuner cards that can allow you to view and record regularly broadcast programming right on your desktop computer to watch at your convenience. Depending on the applications and general use of your system, the options for video cards can be very broad.

    Are there unique things a GPU can do that CPUs can't perform?

    Video cards will often include proprietary technologies to perform functions that your system wouldn't be able to do otherwise. These can include such things as recording video or game footage, high-performance 3D rendering, and advanced multi-monitor support.

    What are some things to keep in mind when looking for a Video Card?

    Which type of video input can your monitor receive? If your monitor only has a VGA connector, you don't want to buy a video card that only outputs in HDMI unless you buy an adapter to go with it.

    What technologies are supported by the video card in question? Multiple Radeon video cards can be connected together through AMD's proprietary CrossFire technology to speed up the rendering of 3D graphics, but only if the cards in question have the capability to do so.

    Examples of these technologies include AMD CrossFire, NVIDIA SLI, OpenGL, and DirectX, etc.

    Where will I plug the video card into the motherboard?

    There are 3 ports that are used to connect graphics cards to the motherboard: AGP, PCI, and PCI Express. These ports are not interchangeable, so make sure to research the connectors available on your motherboard before you purchase your new card.

    The type and capacity of video memory (i.e. DDR3, GDDR5 clock rate specs, etc; 512MB, 2GB etc.) included on the graphics card is also an important factor in selecting the right card for your system.

    What are the differences between entry level, performance and high-end graphics cards?

    Video cards can be roughly broken down into 3 levels of usage: entry level, performance, and high-end/gamer.

    Entry-level users are often on a budget or not too interested in video processing performance. Entry-level video cards are geared toward users who may occasionally play a game or two on their computer, but are usually running at low settings. Oftentimes this class of video cards is more suited to those that use their computers for non-gaming related activities such as web browsing or watching Youtube videos. The graphics cards that are considered entry level are usually very energy efficient and low in cost, but are only suitable for simple home theater PC, multimedia, or office tasks.

    Performance or midrange users require a step up in terms of performance and gameplay. The graphics cards in this class offer a lot of value and features for the money. They can power more demanding PC games, but they generally cannot achieve high frame rates on the latest ones at their maximum video settings. These cards are the most popular video cards on the market because they fit the needs of the widest segment of users.

    High end users and gamers are the ones that want the latest and greatest performance possible, without compromise. The highest- grade graphics cards run every game at max or near max settings, including games that require multi-screen outputs, high end 3d rendering, or 4K resolution displays. These cards require high-end power and cooling components supporting them; there's no point in building a budget PC and throwing in a high-end card. Every part of your system needs to be top-quality to get the performance desired, which often means high-output power supplies, upgraded fans, or even water cooling. These cards are definitely on the more expensive side of the spectrum, but if you are looking to have the highest performing PC available, this is the way to go.

    PCIe vs PCI?

    What is SLI

    SLI (Scalable Link Interface) as we know it was first released to the public sector in 2004 and has slowly been gaining popularity since, especially among the gaming crowd.

    An SLI configured system will have two discrete graphics cards, both of which must use the same GPU (Graphics Processor Unit), e.g. two GTX 580s but not one GTX 580 and one GTX 570; they don't necessarily have to be from the same manufacturer however. These cards also must be installed on a compatible motherboard which will have two (or more) PCI-Express x16 ports as well as a compatible chipset, either one of NVIDIA's own nForce or one of Intel's newer (P55/X58 or later) chipsets-don't take my word for it though, always check with your motherboard's manufacturer rather than assuming it does or doesn't. Linking the two cards is an SLI bridge, a small connector that provides a 1Gbps connection between the two cards, allowing them to function without stealing bandwidth from the PCIe bus. The SLI Bridge should be included in the purchase of any SLI compatible video card.

    What is CrossFire

    ATI stepped into the multi-graphics card racket a year later than did NVIDIA, but their offering is no less strong and is actually a little more forgiving. ATI Radeon cards don't necessarily have to posses identical GPUs to be CrossFired; any two cards from the same family, e.g. HD 5870 and HD 5850 (they're both from the 5800 family), can be linked together. This makes it easier to upgrade to CrossFire, since you don't have to buy two or three of the exact same card all at once to ensure proper linkage. To compensate, CrossFired cards are able to more dynamically share the rendering workload. NVIDIA cards typically split the work between them 50/50 while ATI cards can vary the ratio, giving less work to the slower processor and allowing the stronger of the pair to shoulder the greater burden.

    Like SLI, CrossFire requires two (or more) PCI-Express ports, two (or more) compatible cards, and a compatible motherboard chipset. Though neither CrossFire nor SLI compatible boards are particularly rare, motherboard chipsets much more commonly favor AMD's CrossFireX, to the point that, if there are two PCI-Express slots on a board, and it doesn't specifically advertise SLI compatibility, it's safe assume it was built with CrossFire in mind.

    What is the quietest video card out there?

    For the purposes of this quietest video card discussion, we're going to look at the quietest air cooled "modern" generation graphics cards out there. While it's true you could go with a passively cooled video card (a video card that only uses a heatsink) but those cap out to lower-end chipsets only. If gaming or graphics performance isn't an issue for you, you could always go that route. Secondly you could run a water cooling system to cool your cards and/or your processor & other components to achieve near-silent performance. That's also definitely an option. But when you're looking at standard graphics cards that are readily available and cooled by a fan, what are the quietest options out there?

    Low End Recommendation:
    Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti STRIX Video Card
    Price Range $139.99 - $149.99

    The Asus STRIX-GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 is a great choice for an HTPC or basic gaming build that you need a quiet card for. This card has an on-demand fan that will only spin up when you need it to. Asus calls this DirectCU II with 0dB Fan Technology. What it means is that you get silent gaming / non-gaming operation the fan stays completely off (0dB Noise). For more intense gaming the cooling system is optimized to run 58% cooler with 3x quieter performance. This is kind of a 'best of both worlds' cooler when it comes to quiet operation because you're getting a decent card, a good price, and fans that only run when needed. The card is entirely powered through the PCIe bus so you're dealing with a lower power draw that can improve your overall cooling without additional cabling needed. Great for a budget or light gaming build.

    High End Recommendation:
    Asus STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX Video Card
    Price Range $339.99 - $359.99

    Here you're getting a very capable card powered by the GeForce GTX 970 chipset. 4GB of memory with 3-way SLI support and a load of features. But what makes this special is that it (like many of the STRIX cards) has a whisper quiet idle mode that shuts off the fans when not needed. So again, you're getting 0dB when the fans are off and the fans will only come on when you're running advanced gaming. This is a pretty nice feature to have in a GTX970 card - a true sweet spot best bang for your buck chipset for gaming. This card is a little bit on the bigger side so you're going to want to use it on small form factor builds or HTPC's unless you are using a full size chassis or mid-tower ATX case. Many of our customers report nearly silent operation under load - you'll definitely be surprised by how silent this card runs when in use.

    What PCI-Express version is best for my motherboard?

    PCI-express is an easily backwards compatible protocol, similar to USB, in that while a PCI-Express 3.0 card can be installed into a PCI-Express 2.0, or even a 1.1 slot, performance levels have the potential to bottlneck. Make sure to know what kind of connections your motherboard has available to buy the appropriate pci-e video card for your PC.

    What video card do I need for gaming?

    Video cards for gaming don't necessarily need to be the latest and greatest, but they do need to be pretty good. These graphics cards are able to provide gaming performance for your system, generally at mid-range settings. You'll have a great time playing games, editing photos, and improved graphics throughout the rest of your system after installing one or more of these entry level PCI-Express video cards into your system.

    What's the difference between AMD and NVIDIA Graphics cards?

    AMD and NVIDIA are the two main graphics chip manufacturers for consumer PCs. AMD's most popular line is Radeon, and NVIDIA's is GeForce. They both offer GPUs with great performance, but NVIDIA is known to be a bit more expensive but offers great performance while not taking a lot of power, and AMD sometimes has better performance for a lower cost, but it could require higher energy and run at higher temperatures. If you need to cut your budget and you don't mind your system sounding like a wind-tunnel, AMD is probably the way to go. But for cooler systems and lower energy requirements, NVIDIA is the choice for you.

    Where can I get a 4K video card?

    We've got several video cards supporting 4K video, giving you incredible resolution for your movies and games. Along with the 4K video these video cards provide excellent gaming performance for all the latest games. Install one of these high-performance video cards into your system to create a gaming PC that will be able to run any game out today, as well as play the highest resolution video.

    How much memory should a video card have for gaming?

    Actually, the amount of RAM isn't as important. Don't get us wrong, more RAM is better, but for high-end systems and ultimate gaming performance you need to do what you can to minimize bottlnecks, so along with how much RAM your graphics card should have, make sure that you're getting a wide bandwidth memory. GDDR5 is twice the bandwidth of DDR3, which means it'll have little chance at bottlenecking. Just make sure other components in your build (CPU in particular) aren't going to create bottlenecks either.

    Why buy a video card over $300?

    Performance. When you need a card that will render quickly, you need a high performance video card. These high-end graphics cards are not for everyone, but they are for everyone that wants to see every detail in their games rendered beautifully, and their video editing and 3D models to render quickly. Pick from these top Nvidia and AMD graphics cards for the best performance in your system.

    Will AMD Crossfire or Nvidia SLI give me double the performance?

    Multi-GPU technologies are great for high-perforance gaming on multiple monitors, but they don't give double the performance of a single graphics card, and they are pretty much wasted on a single monitor setup. Get a single, high-end video card to save money and get incredible performance.

    What cards does AMD make?

    AMD builds the Radeon lineup of video cards for consumers and the FirePro line for enterprise users. They got into the video card business by acquiring ATI in 2006 and re-branding them to AMD in 2010. ATI's history can be traced back much further as they were a pioneer in earlier days of 3D gaming & video chipsets.

    Which are the video cards made by Nvidia?

    NVIDIA makes the GeForce and GeForce GTX line of graphics cards. These are the most successful graphics lines in the industry for gamers - including users looking to get into Virtual Reality and advanced immersive gameplay. NVIDIA leads the industry by pushing the envelope for performance with such releases as the GTX Titan X - one of the best cards ever released - including support for DirectX 11 / 12, 3D Vision Surround, etc. Nvidia also has a separate line for their professional end carsd called the Quadro.

    What is a half height or low profile video card?

    A half height video card is type of smaller form factor gpu. More commonly, this type of card is known as a low profile video card due to it's smaller size and reduced depth. Low profile video cards are great for small PC builds such as a media center PC or kiosk. A half height video card will take up less room on your I/O port than a traditional board. Typically, only one of the PCI-E x16 slots is required for installation.

    What does PCI-E Stand for?

    PCI Express, or Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, slots have largely replaced older PCI and AGP standards to become the most widely used internal card slots on computers. PCI express was developed to provide increased bandwidth and throughput capabilities over its predecessors and has been design to provide maximum compatibility with hardware and software already out there. PCI Express was developed to handle the higher bandwidth rates of today's hardware components - such as Video Cards, FireWire 800, USB 3.0, etc. PCI Express connections are broken up into lanes. A PCI Express lane consists of 4 wires (two pairs of Send/Receive wires). So, a PCI Express X1 card which has 1 lane consists of 4 wires. A PCI Express X16 card (the common standard for video cards) has 16 lanes, or 64 wires. PCIe x16 has become the most widely used implementation of PCI Express as PCI Express Video Cards [1] have adopted the X16 interface as their standard. In comparison to PCI or AGP, PCI Express offers increased bandwidth capabilites. Since PCI-Express is the current standard (and looks to be the standard for some time in the future) it's advisable to purchase PCI-Express based cards & peripherals to ensure that your system will maximize it's performance now and be able to deal with upgrades in the future. If you are faced with a PCI-Express vs PCI or PCI-Express vs. AGP decision, it's generally advisable to go with the PCI-Express solution. One sometimes-confusing fact about PCI-Express slots is that they are keyed to be backwards compatible. What that means is that if you have a PCI Express X16 slot on your motherboard, you can plug in a PCIe X16, PCIe X8, PCIe x4, or PCIe X1 in that slot.

    10-Steps on How to Upgrade Your Video Card

    How do you upgrade the video card in your computer? Upgrading your video card is one of the best things you can do to speed up your computer in Windows. This is true whether or not you play games! When Microsoft released Windows 7 they made it a point to display the Windows graphics and gaming graphics scores in the "Windows Experience Index" so that it would be plainly visible to you. And your graphics card's performance not only influences 3D applications and games, but Microsoft made it clear that your desktop performance under Windows Aero was also heavily influenced by this. This holds true with Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 as well. So if you've identified the need to upgrade the graphics card in your PC, here's how to do it in 10 easy steps:

    1. Identify your upgrade options - do you have available PCI-Express slots? Will your PSU handle the new card?
    2. Buy the video card that fits your budget/needs/wants.
    3. Unplug your computer from all power
    4. Remove your existing video card (if necessary) and plug in your new one into an available slot. Secure it with screws and/or any special mechanism your case offers.
    5. Connect all needed power cables from your power supply to the video card (some video cards don't need this)
    6. Turn your computer on. If your monitors are getting video then GREAT! Skip the next step.
    7. If you have onboard video you may have to disable it to get your video card to work. This can be done by entering the BIOS of your PC. Consult your manual for information on this.
    8. Once your system boots up into Windows, let it try to automatically locate the drivers/software for your card. If that doesn't work, install the software that came with your video card. As a final step, you may also need to go into Device Manager and locate the card. You may see a generic display adapter found or something similar. You can right click on that, go to properties, and install the driver through this screen.
    9. After installing the card and its software, go into your video card properties / screen resolution settings to make sure everything is as you like it.

    At this point your card should be ready to go. Make sure your re-run your Windows Experience Index score to see what you've jumped up to! As always we carry a full lineup of video cards broken down by interface type. The most common types for modern desktops are PCI-E or PCI-Express cards. We also still carry a small selection of PCI and AGP cards but always choose PCI-E unless you have a specific reason not to.
